Good Q, especially the pulled pork. Ribs and German rope sausage are also favorites. The hostess is the best. Definitely worth a stop. Only open Thurs until Sunday, "or until the food runs out" (not a joke... it happens.)

We stopped here based on TripAdvisor reviews while on a road trip and we would not try it again. The service is very friendly with a lot of character so we had high hopes. They brag up the pulled pork and the ribs. I lived...More

The chicken was very tender. The flavors weren't our preference and the BBQ chicken tasted too much like vinegar and the potato salad wasn't traditional tasting. The BBQ chips were probably our favorite part of the meal as that was the only thing we finished....More

Family run and family friendly restaurant with spectacular scenery just outside. Wonderful service. Smoked meats include chicken and pork. A bit pricey. The beans and cole slaw were wonderful.

Average BBQ, nothing special. Very expensive, easily over $12.00 a person for lunch. Baked beans not very good.
