I used to swear by the BBQ here....not anymore. The owner sold it, the new owners have changed the regular flavor on the items on the menu. The new BBQ sauce is way to sweet, and they are no longer making their famous to die...More

The turkey sandwich on the online menu, waitress just couldn't come up with it. I did not want bacon, I did not want cheese, just wanted turkey, white bread, mustard, mayo . She just could NOT find it. Very disappointing.

One of our favorite places for lunch or catering which we have used a few times. Their pork meat is fabulous, but I don't consider it traditional BBQ. It more a great pork roast. They have excellent sides. Wish they would open on Sunday.
