Great ribs and pulled pork! Quality meat smoked so that juicy meat falls off the ribs. Delicious BBQ sauce. This place caters too! This would be incredible to have in a box at Michigan Football game. Owner is french trained chef...Impeccable credentials! Highly recommended.

Don't let the rustic exterior fool you. What this place lacks in glitz, it more than makes up for in taste. This guy knows what's up with all his dishes. The moistest, most flavorful pulled chicken and pork, amazing brisket and fantastic sides. I tried...More
