Overall the food is ok,but BBQ chicken is delicious. Poor environment and service. If you don't have that many, you can try.

Put this on your list of places to eat in Methven if you love BBQ. Saw the BBQ's chuffing away all day until the truck opened at 3pm. We had the slow cooked Beef Brisket which was outstanding, so tender and flavoursome with 2 sides,...More

Stopped by with the family for dinner and all left happy. Some of the best smoked meat I've ever eaten with great sides. It was drizzling rain so we sat inside which is still a work in progress, but comfortable all the same. Not licensed...More

Passionate about food and meat in particular! Smoked low and slow all our perfectly selected meats have been dry rubbed and smoked for 12+ hours in our genuine smokers from Texas. Juicy and tender meat and locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Grab a classic bbq side or something you've never tried. You won't be disappointed!!
