The place is pretty good. More okay in my book but I didn’t feel that it warranted an average rating I’d go back but just wasn’t spectacular

The ribs are very meaty and tender and the sauces are great. The service is friendly and attentive. The sides are freshly prepared and a generous size. The pulled pork and chicken are really great also.

Fast-casual barbeque restaurant serving authentic comfort food. Serves award-winning BBQ, huge sandwiches, homemade sides, fresh salads, and incredible desserts. All meats—beef brisket, pulled pork, St. Louis–cut ribs, Amish chickens, turkey breast, and special-recipe sausage—are smoked on site, and all sides and desserts are made fresh daily in the restaurant. Caters thousands of events every year, of all sizes and styles: everything from formal weddings and backyard graduation parties to company picnics and family reunions. Great for lunch, dinner, dine-in, or carryout. Supports teammates and communities alike; prioritizes giving back to local charities and non-profits.
