My Wife and I visited on a Saturday morning. We had Andy as a server. He was excellent. We loved his upbeat personality. He took care of us very well. Stellar service from him. Our food was wonderful. Kiddos to the cook as well!

We ate here 2x as we were in town for a week. The brisket was fantastic. They have 15+ different BBQ sauces to use and buy. There is a country store that has many fantastic jellies, jams and butters. The fudges were very good.
