It's been a while since I've had really good bbq and this place was so on point. I got there 3 meat combo with coleslaw and baked beans. The meat was tender, flavorful, and it makes you want more.

Keep looking. We had ribs and pork and neither were good. BBQ beans tasted like they were out of a can.

This place has been around for a long time. Nothing fancy for dining at the kitchen, but the barbeque is really good and the take-away is a great way to have a quick dinner.

Small unpretentious place. A few tables in from of the grill. Choice based on BBQ rib, chicken and few more. Prices are cheap especially if you share the same chicken with 2 to 4 persons.

Live meat grilling in front of you! The chicken was delicious, tender on the inside, crispy skin. Very kind owner that made us feel welcome, and provided good service.
