We eat here whenever we go to Bryce. Excellent pulled pork. Good sauces. Fresh coleslaw and moist cornbread. Peach cobbler was excellent. Love supporting a local business.

Stopped in here after hiking Bryce. Lots of seating inside and out. No wait. Friendly staff. $25 for 3 meats and 2 sides and drink. Average for BBQ I find. Ribs weren't gonna be ready until 4PM. Not sue if that's the case every day...More
