Driving from Wisconsin to Arizona. Love barbecue so stopped here. Patio nestled in the trees. Portions generous. Everything house made. Delicious. GM Spencer and server Olivia provided excellent gracious service - exceptional at today’s restaurants.

One of my favorite places to eat in Bentonville. Moderately priced. Great atmosphere with live music on the patio on Saturday nights. Food & service are always great. Fabulous barbecue and equally great homemade Italian. My favorites--ribs and the grilled chicken. Reservations recommended.
