Not your typical finger licking bbq. More on the dry side. Food was very good. You might have to wait a moment to be seated as this place is popular. Love to go back.

Lunch was good. Had pulled pork BBQ sandwich. Friends enjoyed their sandwiches as well. I have been back once after a bike ride too.

Lots of different meat options; venison, boar, bison, etc. I stuck with the ribs which were delicious. Small place, tight seating. Great service! 4 different sauces available on the table: Vinegar, Mustard, Spicy and Sweet.

The service is always friendly and the staff is very knowledgeable about what they are currently pouring. I have never been disappointed with any food order. Will continue to return when seating is available on our walk by. Busy place.
