Best barbecue in town! Tried several barbecue places in town but they are simply the best. Try the marbled brisket and the beef ribs and you will come back for more.😊

This was an odd lunch. A BBQ restaurant has moved into a former Chinese Buffet. The check-in, pink/blue lights, and fancy chandeliers are still there but now there's a counter where you can order barbecue. The food was good and I really enjoyed the greens...More

Very unassuming BBQ with outstanding food. Quality meats, quality sides. A little more expensive than other BBQs but well worth the cost. I have not eaten anything here that was not the best in the region.

Looking for a good BBQ place in the area while staying overnight, this newly relocated joint (old Howard Johnson's?) hits the high mark on everything except the sausage for the meats. Baked beans were superb.

Some pretty great brisket. I think the marbled has the perfect amount of fat for moistness and flavor. The baked beans and potato salad were great as well, although the naked beams are definitely on the sweeter side.

Delicious! Their brisket falls apart because it is so tender. Their sides are delicious too. You can also get bar-b-que chicken that is yummy. They are moving to a new location which will be nice as they can serve more people that want to come...More

Getting good BBQ at 3pm is always a little sketchy most places because it's been sitting around all day. I got a lb of lean brisket ($16) and 1/2 a chicken ($6) and it was very moist and flavorful. My to-go order came with white...More
