Nice portions, juicy fresh, very filling and satisfies the craving for real American BBQ. There's other more 'famous' joints in Redding to have BBQ, but the real honest deal is here.

The BBQ potato was a good idea. We really enjoyed our lunch. Large portions and I can still smell the BBQ sauce on my hands. Their spicy isn't, but the BBQ sauce is good and they have bottles for sale by the door.
