For great value and a sumptuous feast for two I highly recommend the full rack rib deal. Ribs are meaty, tender and come with a delicious sauce. Alas, no delivery, but take-out is fast and easy. Service is good and friendly staff. Highly recommended!

Hands down the best pulled pork sandwich I've eaten! And reasonably priced! I can't wait to get back to try something else. This off the beaten path restaurant offers eat in or take out and friendly service. If you want BBQ you won't be disappointed.

Stopped in for dinner, the whole family had the ribs. They were awesome. Even my picky child enjoyed them! Owners have pride in their establishment and made sure we were enjoying everything. Definitely a great stop to eat.
