Stopped in for lunch. We had BBQ beef brisket, sausage. Very tender and moist. A very extensive BBQ menu, if I lived closer this would be my most frequently visited restaurant. Very casual, booth style seating. Happy barbecuing.

A good bar-b-q place, with a wide variety of choices of meats and trimmings. It isn't fancy, but the food is good. Only complaint is that they don't seem to ever prepare enough bar-b-q chicken. They are always out when we arrive. But then there...More
