We found this place by accident while waiting for Chinese takeout a few doors over. The place is what you would expect for a roadhouse BBQ. Pretty dark, nothing fancy - bar stools need a little carpentry work. However, one of the bartenders, Nancy, is...More

The food was excellent, the way BBQ should be. This is a bar with great food, not a great restaurant with a bar. I would not bring children here.

Nothing fancy, the chow is good and you get plenty. The property is well maintained and clean. The cornbread is recommended.

Great food, get it to go, keep your receipt and count your change. People smoking in the bar which was full of riff raft and drunks. New owners recently I suspect but same old regulars that drove away walk in regular customers over the years....More

The bartenders were more worried about taking shots and playing with each other than serving clients
