I believe this place is now closed. When it was open is had really good ribs and the staff was always nice. Really was a hidden gem. Maybe one day it will reopen.

Def and stop by and grab, the location is very small. The food is really good though, Solid BBQ and the Burgoo is different (and good) from the other 2 places in town. Def worth checking out!

Swung by after a recommendation from another local business. Split a pulled pork sandwich with my wife. It was incredible! This place is a true BBQ palace!

I was expecting this establishment to be an awesome experience, but it never happened. I took my mother here because of the great reviews I had seen. Upon arrival, I will admit that I was excited because Fritz is a real hole-in-the-wall joint. What you...More
