Finally shut the doors to this place. The owner does not know how to run a restaurant or smoke meat. If anyone thought the food was good here you need to find out what a good steak and ribs taste like somewhere else.

Beef brisket is a dry rub method and is excellent. I've not found a better brisket anywhere. The roasted chicken is also very good. Prices are reasonable and the decor makes you feel right at home in cattle country! We love this Nebraska original!

This place needs way more traffic than it's getting. Famous Dave's has nothing on this! I always get the loaded baked potato with pulled pork. Their bbq sauces are also much more tasty than other bbq places. Would highly recommend!

We've only eaten here one time. Service was slow. Seating was terrible. Didn't feel like we got what we paid for. Some other local bbq joints do a better job.
