The best BBQ on our vacation. Not overly sauced up. The flavor of the tender meat came through. I'd recommend it to anyone. Wild decor that was a hoot. Not well advertised from the street but worth searching for. Great food!

The pulled pork sandwich was good and the ribs were just OK. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Prices reasonable. Nothing fancy . Probably worth another try.

Had pulled pork sandwich. Tasted like it had been simmering in a crock pot. Had more sauce than meat. And the sides were not great either.
