This barbecue restaurant is a favorite with all the locals.The food is brought to your table family style and everyone serves themselves from the bowls and platters just like you would do at home. I have never been there when the food was not delicious.

Certainly worth eating here once. The quaint atmosphere in an old corral is unique. All you can eat bbq. No menus. Classic country music. I've had better bbq but this is still good.
