Meat was tender, but I couldn’t get away from the liquid smoke flavor! Service was ok. BBQ sauce was too runny. Unfortunately, we do better bbq at home

For 11 bucks I got a roll and a side of smooshed meat in styrofoam. So, since I ordered a sandwich, I guess I had to assemble my own. A friend ordered a different sandwich and it came assembled. So many questions... Cornbread was my...More
