Food is a bit over smoked but good if you like that. Ordered a ton of food for me and hungry kids and was then told, no credit or debit taken. !!!!!!!!!

Nothing fancy..your old school type roadside BBQ joint with fantastic BBQ. I have tried everything on the menu and it is great. Great trip destination if you like to ride your bikes...either peddle or motor! My favorite are the BBQ ribs.

Great place for bbq. Ribs and brisket are the best. Easy to locate and get a parking spot. Dining is outdoors under cover. Convenient hours (11 -7).
