Had a wonderful pulled pork BBQ sandwich here. The cinnamon apples were alright. The waitress was very friendly and cheerful. The entire price was under $8 Not fancy or up scale but great for a cheap tasty meal.

Meal was excellent and service was outstanding. We would highly recommend it. Very casual. They specialize in ribs and bar-b-que. The portions are very generous. You can obtain a coupon at the travel store just two door down for a free appetizer of onion strings.
