We had an excellent meal here. They specialize in barbecue and do it very well. The portions are generous and the service was great. The fry break with honey butter is a great addition to every meal. A great place to eat in Columbia Falls.

Won't go away hungry. There is a smorgasbord on Sunday evening that has a cross section of everything I the Back Room and it is all good for a great price.! Can't go wrong if you like meat.
