Tried this small BBQ restaurant for the 1st time for Sunday lunch - what a great find!! It's a little off the beaten path, but they have mouth watering Bar-B-Que pork, chicken and other great dishes. We will definitely return soon.

Stopped traveling through to mountain vacation...lunch was wonderful...BBQ was smoky, collards were earthy, macaroni and cheese was loved by toddler the most. Beef brisket was ok...good flavor but not best ever. Atmosphere casual and welcoming. Service was not best...kept having to ask for tea, etc.
