Ok for run of the mill barbeque. Had the brisket which was good but not special. Tried the ribs not bad, the sauce is what makes it. Not Texas barbeque.

Food just okay. No substitutions. Not very clean. Seating is very uncomfortable. Very outdated. Won’t go back. Service was good. Had a very attentive waitress.
