Rustic & simple, if not rough, atmosphere. The BBQ is good. Our group had pulled pork, beef ribs, tri-tip, beans, cole slaw & potato salad. Everyone enjoyed their meal..

So there are no veggie or light options here but everything other than the bread was gluten free. We tried 3 different types of meats and were surprised by the live Jazz on Sunday afternoons. Wish to be back.

It was good but not a meal I will go back for right away. The ribs were good and beans, the 3 bean salad was not so good. I thought it was a bit over priced but everything is a bit more in this town.

Sadly, beef ribs were inedible, and pork ribs only fair. No smoke flavor in either. I wouldn’t return.

Great place to visit if your hungry. Great choice of meats and sides. Loved the beans. Able to get a beer and a wine to wash it all down. Would love to come when the music is on. Will be back.

This is NOT a "southern BBQ" restaurant. It is a smoked/pit meat restaurant. The sauces do not resemble southern BBQ sauce. It is good, but not great.
