If they have beef brisket, order it. It was absolutely tender and delicious! The banana pudding was amazing! The staff is courteous and very helpful.

We had the pulled pork. It was really tender and had great smoke flavor. There are 4 sauces to choose from. Do yourself a favor and try them all. The owner came by the table to talk to us and the waiter was excellent.

This was our 3rd time trying this restaurant. The BBQ was dry all three times. The portions have been small and the prices are high. Not impressed in the least and won't be back.
