Nothing fancy here, just great BBQ in a comfortable environment. I had the "burnt ends" and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich. The portions were large and very reasonably priced.

Usually the food is pretty good but not this time. Meat tasted great but sauces tore us up. Maybe sitting out too long?? Wings were awesome. Not sure what happened but they definitely dropped the ball on this one.
