They have really good meat and fried pies! My favorite meat is the chicken! But they are pretty expensive

We were traveling and stopped in based on TripAdvisor reviews. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but once you're inside, it's clean, decorated, and full of friendly people. The food was great. It wasn't the best barbecue in the world, but the portions...More
