Papa Hog's is gone and the place is now Nico's Carneceteria. It is both a butcher's and a restaurant. It is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The meats here are exceptional and Nico is a great fellow that will make you instantly feel at home....More

Not real BBQ too pricy...I thought it was a BBQ joint and was disappointing that they really had nothing on the menu.. Only one time is needed to know ..never go back..

This is a small, informal, outside, roadside restaurant with 3 picnic tables. The owners (from Canada) are friendly. The BBQ ribs were good - served Friday and Saturday. The chicken was tasty and fresh.

Seriously! This guy sells poutine and smoked meat sandwiches. An ex-pat from north of Toronto, Canada. Very friendly! Ask him how he recreates the poutine cheese and where he gets his pastrami from, quite interesting!
