Not as good as the better bbq joints in the South but for New England about as good as it gets. A good value also; not expensive to eat here. Real barbecued meat, good cuts, not just cooked in an oven to be doused with...More

Some of the best BBQ I've ever eaten. Generous servings and good prices. Prepare to ask for a doggy bag.

The food is great here, and the dishes are authentic southern. Think you can't get good BBQ in Maine? Think again! Love the ribs and the pulled pork. (just wish they served Brunswick stew. . .but then they are Tennessee folks, not Georgia!)
