Back in the day in the little cabin the meat was smoked for a long time and DIVINE. Since they sold the business and moved into the strip mall, not so much. Okay food, just not the same as it used to be.

Love this place! It's come a long way since the days when it was located in a tiny cabin in a liquor store parking lot. Our fave dinner includes the ribs, baked beans, and corn bread.

Love the smokey BBQ flavor that comes from authentic wood grilling. Recently used the brisket and a few left over ribs to make chili. It was quick, easy and the flavor was fantastic!

A great place to stop on the run to get fabulous smoked bar-b-que sandwiches. I have stopped here for several years at the Maryland / Delaware border. Unfortunately they have closed. I don't know if they have a new location.
