we had this catered into a training location. They have a variety of different choices. we had sausage, brisket, and chicken as well as baked beans, coleslaw and creamed corn. Everything was delicious. I liked the flavor of this chicken the best.

Good basic barbecue. Excellent sauce. Limited menu but what they have is well done. Not as good as Pappas BBQ but decent.

Great BBQ especially the brisket. Sausage is great also but you have to buy the whole link. The food is served in a tray but there are plates at the condiment table.

Very nice place, almost everything is self-service. The meat is made in the amount you want and the way you want it and is delicious. Their sauces are excellent and give the meat a special flavor.
