I tried the sampler platter and thought the ribs were the best. The rest was all very good the chicken, pulled pork, sausage. They had three different sauces and were quite tasty. I preferred the hot. Service was great and nice atmosphere

Draft beer at airport prices and the quality is clearly sketchy these days! The service was OK. The clientele did not realize how much sugar goes into the BBQ Sauce as they were all fairly big people!!!

Super tender baby back ribs, got the sample plate. It’s a ton of protein! The wings are the very best! Service is wonderful! Go and see for yourself. But go way hungry!
