This place is not worth anyone's time. The service is AWFUL. You would think you would market your place instead of being standoffish. I ordered brisket and slaw. The brisket was spread across the bread really, really thin. The slaw is a tablespoon helping at...More

Small place with about 6 tables/booths. Homemade sausage a little spicier then the other sausage on menu. Brisket tender, pork ribs were also tender. Didn't try chicken and no pork chops or loin on menu.
