Very friendly cashier helping newer guest understand all their great options. Lots of great choices and BBQ sauces for all. Come hungry This newer location is nicer than the old strip mall they were in last year down the street. Keep up the great effort.

A smaller dining area, but a great brisket. I ordered the brisket meal with cornbread and mac & cheese. Cornbread was very good. Not a big fan of their mac & cheese. It was ok though. The brisket could have been hotter. It was served...More

My husband, who has celiac disease, gets the pork platter without bread. I am not aware of any gluten-free sandwiches.

Locally owned, locally sourced ingredients. 14 hours of slow smoking for southern style BBQ. This is a rare find in Minnesota. A real gem! Also, this was featured on Man vs. Food on the Travel Channel recently.
