If you're into barbecue, then you'll love this place. The macaroni and cheese is one of the best I've had. This place is usually busy. If you go on a weekend for dinner, expect to wait.

We stopped here during our roadtrip, as a Texan, I must say this place wasn't bad at all. The staff were friendly, especially our server - very attentive and had good recommendations. The meats were tender and moist, but the only thing I must bring...More
