We enjoyed two lunch specials. I had pork tips and brisket and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich. Good service, good portions and reasonable prices. Six BBQ sauces to pick.

We were there on a quiet Thursday. The food was good. My wife had a big salad & I had the BBQ brisket. Wine was fairly reasonable, and the staff was good. They had several different sauces to choose from, some hotter than others.

We love to do happy hour here on our weekends. You cannot beat half off appatisers and special drink prices. All while viewing part of a game. Love those burnt ends!
