Nice fast food type BBQ. They have a good selection of different meats and sides. The prices are reasonable. Came in very late and they waited around for us to finish. Very nice of the staff.

This is a good BBQ place with a number of options and sauces. Your meal comes out on a metal platter and service is fast. A good spot for family or for a few drinks with your BBQ.
