Just stopped by for a quick sandwich, the brisket was the best I've sampled in a long time & the onion rings were very good. If you're in the area, check them out.

We had the fish taco and grilled cheese, with fries. A bit pricey for what you get but it was good food, no complaints. They boast that their bacon is the best but I didn't try it.
