So far have had pulled pork, chopped brisket, and turkey. Superior Quality Meats. Community seating is like an indoor picnic ground without the dirt and ants.

The staff is really helpful and friendly in helping you know portion sizes in terms of pounds of meat for x number of people. It's good barbecue and the line moves fairly quickly, so there's not a long wait.
