If you're looking for the real deal on BBQ, this is it. My first encounter with their fare was at Seats and Eats in 2013 and they got my vote.

I do really like BBQ. They are easily accessible. Truthfully though the BBQ is rather ordinary. Not enough to prompt return visits.

The BBQ is good--not the best but good. The breakfast burritos are the best! We prefer to 'take-out' as there really is no atmosphere.

Excellent chopped pork bbq with a choice of sauces. Blackberry cobbler was very good. This restaurant has been in the same location for 23 years, offers a wide range of meals, starting with breakfast burritos. Its longevity attests to value received.
