I've passed this place a million times, and never knew it was there, until I found it online looking for barbeque places...it's in a small strip mall, and is really just a hole-in-the-wall place--but, man, what an epic surprise!!!!! I live about 45 minutes away,...More

Stopped in for dinner. The pulled pork was very good, tender and juicy. The brisket was disappointing and clearly not smoked as long as the menu purports, else the veins of fat running through every piece would have rendered.
