Have driven by this place many times. The location is great but things go downhill from there. I ordered pulled pork and onion rings and my wife ordered ribs. The meat itself was cooked ok but there is not much evidence of true smoking going...More

Worst dining experience I’ve ever had. Poor service to start, waiter (who I think is the owner) was rude, with no social skills or ability to serve. Forgot our appetizer, when we mentioned it to another waitress she stated “he’s so busy tonight, I feel...More

Went once and was disappointed, decided to give it another chance, not any better. The BBQ itself was nothing to write home about, the sides and appetizers were more like a school cafeteria. Won't go back.

Delicious food at affordable prices. Nice atmosphere great places for family dinner or nice enough for a date night. Smoking train out front was a nice attention getter

Service staff is good. The food on the other hand isn't that good. From orders being messed up to the brisket finally coming out, but cold and overlooked. Chicken that couldn't be cooked because they couldn't get the temp high enough ? We were told...More
