Fantastic tasty smoked brisket and turkey. I had the two meat dinner - very reasonably priced and generous portions. Great tasting potato salad and coleslaw. I will definitely visit again when I'm in Jefferson.

Everyone that I dined with at lunch enjoyed what they got. There were 5 of us and we all got something different. Everything was so good. I live about 45 minutes to an hour away and I would make the drive just to eat there.
