Especially the brisket. Large cafeteria style with lots of seating and nice bug bad. Music and karaoke on several nights each week. Also great for carrying out for groups.

We enjoy Branded72's barbecue. They have a variety of meats and prepare them with hickory-smoked wood. I and my family have gone there many times, and the food has been consistently of high quality and the atmosphere pleasant.

Years and years ago, this place was O'Brien's Pit Barbecue. The new owners kept the cafeteria line but added optional table service. The bar is on one side and that has a few booths, a couple of TVs and some high top tables. That seemed...More
