The food is awesome and the service is good. There is not much atmosphere but the quality of the food makes up for it. We got a bunch of meat and sides for a family gathering and everyone loved it.

If you like a small but great place for BBQ this is the place. Always fresh meat made daily and they have a sign saying that they do run out of meat that they cook. So get there early and enjoy. It's mouth watering.

Very tasty BBQ pork sandwiches and potato salad. We plan on going back. About a ten minute wait for food delivery from when we ordered.
