Smoked meats as good as I've had, watch it for the hot sauce...... it is HOT. Good prices and good food! 😀

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.

Love busters BBQ, the Tri Tip Sandwich is my personal favorite and the mac salad has a great and addictive kick to it!! Note: the mild sauce is easily spicy enough...so be warned on the "hot sauce". Sit in the back garden area, sometimes you...More

Meat lovers paradise. Amazing selection of bbq grilled meats, beans and sauces. All smoked in the back yard. Garlic toast sandwiches or meat plates with beans and/slaw available by the pint or quart. Fantastic place to visit for light or full lunch when travelling through...More

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.

We stopped here for lunch after hitting a couple wineries. The bbq is excellent and priced right for all that you get. The potato salad and corn bread is also very good. You won't leave hungry.

This place is the worst for BBQ. The food is overpriced and not worth it. The ribs are greasy and not even good. The cornbread is pre made, they use the microwave for everything. Not worth it. The owner is so rude
