Can tell how good a barbeque place is by the crowds and the smell. We went at 6pm and were the only people there. No smell of hickory smoke or any smoke. The food was decent and food cuts. No smoke ring on the brisket,...More

Try the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. Add sauce for flavor. Get the homemade cole slaw. Enjoy the fried mushrooms and the sweet potato fries. A helpful friendly waitress kept up with drink refills, even if the drink was water with lemon.
