Very long queues because this place is sooooo good! Reasonable prices and you order what you like from the pit master then get salads,bread etc inside. They had a live band when we went and it was mixed crowd,lots of families and couples.

I like this place. Good price and good BBQ. My favorite is the brisket. You probably will find a line, but it moves fast. What is inconvenient is the smoke in a windy day., be prepared. The food is great.

Visited with coworkers based upon their raving reviews. Had brisket and jalapeno sausage. Overall, I wasn't impressed. It's good BBQ, but not great BBQ. Spent $23 and in retrospect, would have been better off going elsewhere for the money. The jalapeno sausage was tasty. Brisket...More

Not knowing about Hard 8 - we parked and there was a line out the door. There was another 2 lines inside the door. You're waiting on line to get up to the smoker/Pit, where the pit master was cutting at an amazing pace. You...More
