We had the famous hot dog with pulled pork and a chicken hoagie. Both items were excellent and super tasty. Based on the reviews I wasn't necessarily blown away but the food was in fact very good. I would recommend this place for a lunch or lite dinner.

Found this place on yelp and/or tripadvisor. It was very close to our hotel. Loved it! Very small place with very friendly service. The pulled chicken sandwich was delicious. The sweet potato fries were about the best I've had & loved the maple dipping sauce that came with them. The lemon ice box pie for dessert was fabulous and big... More

I went here for lunch with two others. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious. They have huge portions. HUGE! There is something called the "big boner" which is a giant hotdog with a rack of ribs on top of it. If you are trying to lose weight, stay away from this place. Also, be aware that you will probably wait... More

Visited on a Saturday with family. What we liked: 1. Really, the food is amazing. I wish I could fix a burger at home this juicy; run down your hands onto your arms juicy. I'm not being facetious. Yes, it was messy, but it was sooooooooo good. Big too. Split it with a table mate. 2. Onion rings fresh and... More

This place has a comfy, cozy atmosphere, the staff is super friendly, they have local craft beer, and the best buffalo style shrimp tacos I have ever had! I also got the fried pickle spears and they were delicious! Just beware the portions are HUGE, definitely good for sharing!
