My review of this place is mixed. The locals seemed to love it. My family we left wondering exactly why. The BBQ was more like Carolina than Southern. The dry rub is very spicy, the pulled pork was fatty... just not exactly what we expected....More

Really great barbecue/ specialty meats place. Love the gratons (cracklings) and the boudin is delicious. Mouth-watering brisket and pulled pork, and the sides are just as good. Highly recommend lunch here.

Had a great time with family, and had great food! Our server, Leah, was fantastic and really topped the meal for us as well! The food was delicious, and we enjoyed sitting in the outside area.

The aroma alone will set your mouth to watering. Very casual, sit down or take out, your choice of a variety of smoked meats, fish, cheese - all top notch and reasonably priced. If you love this type of cuisine, this is the place.

The hours are 10:00-6:00 Saturday. Yes, it's right across from the best western and next door to The Francis Restaurant. They are 2 separate buildings . Enjoy :)

Don't know if they have gluten free buns- you might give them a call. Their hamburger is really good!
