Counter space for a few people to sit down; more of a take-out place. BUNCH of made in-house sauces; choice of chicken, pork or beef BBQ. Chicken was a LITTLE spicy for me, but that's a personal taste thing - I'm a mild kinda guy....More

Freindly staff and great BBQ. A ton of sauces to choose from. I had the brisket which was tasty, but more like a pulled pork rather than sliced or chopped brisket. Has a side of ribs as well which we had with several different sauces.
