Dropped in for late quick lunch. Got the lunch special #2 (two 4" chopped beef sandwiches with one side and drink for $11.75). Sandwiches came with pickles and onions on the side. Two BBQ sauces on the table along with ketchup to choose from. Fried...More

Great BBQ and lots of meat choices. Service was good except no one got the pickles and onions they ordered. Beans were tried by 2 members of our family, neither liked them. Pulled pork was great, sausage was said to be good, but not great.

I had the pulled pork sandwich with fries. The barbecue was very good with a tomato based sauce. The pork could have been “pulled”a little more since there were some fairly large pieces in the sandwich. The portion is large. This is a family restaurant...More

Busy and good food. By the time we got there, the ribs were sold out so we had the brisket. 2 sauces, one sweet, one vinegary, to choose from. We are glad we stopped.
