This was my first dinner out. You can order the brisket with burnt ends! It was so good and best I have had in a long time. Their beans come with and are spicy but delicious.

My group had lunch there twice while we were in town on business and it was great! Everyone enjoyed it! You basically pay by the pound when it comes the the meat. If you go away hungry, it’s your fault!

This place, while not attractive from the outside, offers outstanding BBQ. The brisket was arguably the very best we've had in years, in an area where there is a lot of BBQ. The links, ribs were excellent, as were the German potato salad, cole slaw...More
