On a Friday night, didn't have to wait too long for a table. The barbecue pork had just the right sauce; not too tangy and not real sweet. I could have gone back the next day and eaten again.

This is an interesting barbecue restaurant with a laid back attitude. The food was delicious: appetizer with various options, including sausage, wings, and cheese. The ribeye steak was very good. Service was ver accommodating (thanks, Jacqueline).

Lovely BBQ place- who doesn't love good BBQ. If you're in the area you must try it. The side dishes are as good as the main course

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.

Food enjoyed by all. Cooked as ordered. Mine, burger well done nicely done and not over cooked. Seating was fast, decent patio but nothing fancy. Server was friendly and efficient, could of been a bit more attentive. Would return.
