I went and ordered a take out for 4 people and surprisingly it was fast and the food was great. The server was friendly and nice making sure I got everything I need. Would recommend to anyone wanting great barbecue dishes.

The BBQ is good not great but still very good. Had a combo appetizer plate very large portions. Some things come with a lot of sauce on it. Have a great variety of sauces you can add.

Food was great, that saves this rating however, there were so many missed steps that no one other than management can be held accountable. We visited on Dec 29 at 7pm and were greeted from the hostess that they were low on menus so we needed to share- the place was half empty. Nearly half dozen tables went without being... More
