Ribs and sides were very good. From my seat I could see the manager ( or owner) seems to appreciate his help. They were efficient and friendly, even the crew outside working the meat smoker spoke to us.

Good local small town joint!! The breakfast and lunch are awesome, they serve much more than BBq. Diner fare, all made to order, country ham, city ham, hot homemade bisquits! Burgers, sandwiches, plate specials. Open for dinner....but we prefer the breakfast and lunch fare.

Perfect example of small town, family owned Restaurant. Friendly waitresses and great home cooked food. Love the BBQ and daily specials. Up for a great burger? Try the Hutch burger! Or the cheeseburger melt. Whatever you try it will be yummy.
