The smell of wood smoke was choking. They had a sign that let us know they were out of chicken, potatoes, ribs and some other foods. There was a sluggish food line and old wood picnic tables with older plastic picnic clothes. We did not...More

This restaurant closed it's doors. A new BBQ place opened up in the old Merchantile building, it's called Mad Jacks. We did not eat there, but there were a lot of people going in and out of the joint!

BBQ doesn't have to be delicious to work for me.....but it grossed me out that there were huge fat chunks in the flavorless chopped brisket. Sides weren't bad, service was good, and it was warm. I will pass next time....

Had a cheese burger. No flavor. Frozen patty, cheap cheese, frozen fries, all at a premium price. Wife had the pulled pork. No flavor. BBQ sauce very weak. Waitress was nice. Large tear in the booth seat. Owner doesn't appear to care. Will not return....More
