It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the bbq (pork) and key lime pie is excellent. So glad we stopped.

The food here is absolutely fantastic for the price and the atmosphere is nice and laid back with super friendly staff. You can sit down and eat in about 20 minutes generally and won't be disappointed by the food.
