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

Criselda, Mark, and Mason are beautiful people that run an amazing bbq spot in a very cool town. Their down-home hospitality, their kind demeanour, and incredible food made my first experience so wonderful. Criselda's greens and the pulled pork sandwich are so delicious. 10/10 will...More

Simple road side BBQ that is family run (hours shortened to keep the family peace...a worthwhile reason for us to sacrifice a little). Criselda is a real trip and will give you suggestions and answer questions with some zest. The smoked brisket is excellent...this ain't...More

This is a shack by the roadside, but the food is great. You can sit outside, or inside. While we were there, there were plenty of customers, so the food is fresh. The slaw is thick and tasty, the beans are spicy. And the meats...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.

Tiny place. You shuffle up to the window and place your order. Someone hollers when it's ready. If there's a high tourist season, maybe you don't get a table, but in mid-Oct. we found room indoors. We got a few different meats and thought the...More
