The video gaming machines as you come in are a little off putting. This is a “order at the counter from a high hanging blackboard and we’ll bring it to your table” kind of a place. Beer (in bottles) is available and soda is do...More

Waiting for our takeout brisket was well worth the wait, enjoying the smells! We got takeout so we could go over to Crystal Lake Brewing Company since they don’ serve dinner, enjoyed with a Main Beach, yumm!

Brisket I'd very good here and you get a large portion. I thought in the past your platter came with two sides, but now they were a charge for each side ordered....either way, great BBQ.

The sandwiches are great, brisket and pulled pork are amazing. Recently, I tried the fries topped with pulled pork and cheese and even though I wouldn’t have finished them, I couldn’t stop!

Went with the family. Tried a bit of everything. It was all good. You know it is good BBQ when the sauces are at the table and they dont cover it in sauce. Corn muffins were the best I've ever had.
