Thanks Harold. We're happy you enjoyed your food. We work hard to keep wait times down and keep everything clean. Hard to do when we get very busy.

This is a bit out of the way, but worth the trip. Recently read it made the top 10 bar-b-q places in PA - and I can see why. You will likely feel like you're going the wrong way if you've never been there before...More

Stopped for lunch, and ordered the pork BBQ sandwich with fries. Generous portions, delicious BBQ, and a variety of sauces to please even the pickiest palate. Definitely worth the drive.

My wife and I visited on a Friday evening and afterward were surprised the place wasn't crowded. By far the best pulled pork, ribs, and green beans we had ever eaten.

This place is a favorite of my family- the pulled pork is awesome and so fresh, and their sides are delicious. The mac & cheese is my personal favorite- a little smokey, really creamy, and they give you just the right amount. All of their...More

This restaurant consistently puts out great BBQ. The price is so-so, but honestly, their food is worth it. From their Big Boy Grilled Cheese to their Beef Brisket, or delicious cornbread with honey butter, their craft is enticing. Also, their portions for fries are huge....More
