Have eaten here a couple of times lately and while certainly not the best BBQ you'll ever eat it is consistently good. The service is fast and friendly and the atmosphere is good. Pulled pork sandwich is very good as well as the brisket. Great...More

Nothing fancy, but lots of good barbeque for not very much money. We ate lunch there, and I got all you could eat pork and chicken for $7.99. The service was excellent. We would eat there again.
