Order it by weight as you come in and add side dishes, like potato salad, slaw, mac-n-cheese, and corn on the cob. Beans, bread, and pickles are complimentary. Picnic style seating.

They definitely have the Old Time BBQ down! The brisket is EXCELLENT! I would recommend the sausage and the fatty brisket. The potato salad and beans are great also. Great place to eat!

Had BBQ beef sandwiches, French fries and iced tea. This was the best BBQ I've had in years - not too much fat, excellent sauce - not too sweet, but with a little tang. Really good.
