Seems to me these days all the BBQ places taste the same or they might have only one unique taste on their menu. So when we decided to try it out, I was expecting just that. But I was in for a surprise! I told...More

Greeted by friendly staff. I was given a free drink as it was my first time there. Had the brisket and pulled pork plate. Meats were tasty, portions could have been larger for the price.

Staying across the street and stopped for dinner. Had a sample of most items. Pork, Brisket, Ribs and Chicken were all good. Great sides and house made sauces. I would say to give it a go!
