Comfortable at the counter for one. Or take the family and sit in a booth. The service is excellent at either place.

Great BBQ and the usual accouterments such as coleslaw and beans, though we don't go often due to the lack of vegetables.

This place is a 2 min. walk from the Hampton and is an older establishment. The booths are a little worn, but the open kitchen looked very clean. I had a "special" which included a 3 egg scramble with spinach, mushrooms, sausage and a pepper...More
