This little spot is a great secret. The steaks, burgers and ribs are delicious. They serve the best smoked meats but also offer smoked baked potatoes that are indescribable. I have not ever found another like these.

While our grand daughter was in college, we ate at this steakhouse several times and were never disappointed! Best steak for 500 miles! And the smoked baked potatoes, out of this world.

It's not cheap but it is worth every cent. Make sure to get the smoked potato too. The small cut of ribeye was $26.95. Don't be fooled by the look of the place. Everyone was very friendly
