Best tasting brisket around. Very moist and tender. Great tasting sides as well. Hubby had the chicken and is very particular about barbecue. Even he was happy! Will be using them for his birthday coming shortly.

They use to be in Waterbury, you smell the smoker as soon as you enter. Steak, chicken, salads. Try the beans and cornbread. Enjoy Always Chefnfly

I really don't know what else to say other than, YOU NEED TO EAT HERE! The Ribs and Brisket are ridiculously, off the hook, high-caliber, BBQ! I love the black eye peas and collard greens.
