We had a delicious lunch for two on a weekday. We had bbq ribs half portion and turkey thighs with the slaw and mac n cheese. I didn't even use the sauce because the dry rub was that good! We were driving between towns on a trip and tried it on a whim, definitiely worth it!

Menu and customer reviews made us hopeful we'd found a hidden gem, but when we visited - not so much. Wait staff didn't seem knowledgable, nor attentive - didn't see anyone on this visit who seemed like adult supervision. Ribs were very dry, over smoked to our taste, and sides sounded better than they ended up. Brisket was better, but... More

Come in for lunch or an early dinner and eat in the bar area. You will not be disappointed. The Cuban sandwich is outstanding. But their pulled pork sandwich is so extraordinary that it has stood the test of time... I do not think they have changed the menu in years - and they don't need to.

We have been stopping here for years. Whether it is on the way home from a ski trip or kinda (ok, a lot) out of the way from outlet shopping, we love every meal. Every detail is well thought out, from the metal bucket light fixtures, to the towel napkins, it feels like a real authentic BBQ joint. Family run,... More

Four of us stopped in and found the staff so friendly and helpful. Not overbearing but just the right amount of attention to insure your well taken care of. We sat in the bar area which I personally love. We ordered several menu items. I had the smoked chicken, man the perfect smokey taste, moist not dry. The pulled pork... More

Texans are fussy about their barbecue so I was a little suspicious to try it. I am so glad I did! The food was excellent and clearly homemade. The staff were very friendly and a delight to be around. The restaurant is rustic but clean and cozy. I would recommend it to all discriminating barbecue lovers.

They are okay, not a real bbq place as far as I am concerned. They are also out of most things I have been there 3 times since they opened and I do not find them to be impressive at all. The staff is not even around most of the time. The nachos were good and the food was just... More
