My new brother in law brought us here for lunch. The beef ribs are so good. You have to try the Beergarita. The BBQ Chicken was my best. We're so full, we can't even get up. The staff are so friendly.

The 3 of us in town for business ordered the all you can eat BBQ ribs, brisket and sausage. Made for a great meal! Staff was super friendly and location next to the Dell Diamond baseball field adds to the experience.
