We had ribs, sliced brisket sandwich, potato salad, pinto beans - all very very good. Also, do not pass up the fried pies, great way to top off a meal.

The chopped beef sandwich is full of smoke flavor with high quality meat chopped just right. Your choice of 4-5 different BBQ sauces, and the fried pies are large and to die for! I love the chocolate one. Their baked potatoes are HUGE. I don't...More
