My wife had the turkey burger and it was very good. I had the nachos with chicken and it was pretty weak. You have to pay an extra $2.49 for the chicken which amounted to about two forks full. The tomatoes were green, and I...More

I was in here for lunch not too long ago. I had the pulled pork sandwich that was really good. The service was good. The beer was cold. Nice lunch.

Barbecue was very good. Atmosphere was very nice. The value was quite good for what you got. Nothing bad at all.
