The price was good but I'm so use to really good BBQ this was disappointing. The waitress was very nice and helpful and the restaurant was clean.

Great Local Food at an awesome price. Typical BBQ menu except they do not serve pulled prok....but they will chop it for you. I love the Ken's Club Sandwich with BBQ Turkey, Pork and Beef. Great portions and low price.

I do not run this restaurant so don't know why you asked me about when they have brunswick stew. Also the directions/address for this restaurant is completely WRONG - you will end up in the middle of the forest if you go by... More
