We stumbled upon this great lil bbq spot! We ordered the meatloaf sandwich w/ mac n cheese and the cubano w/ fries. Both were awesome, but the meatloaf was my favorite. Fast, friendly service. Bar avail, although we didn't partake. Overall, great find.

Looks much better inside instead of outside. The food was great and the place was very clean. I'm glad I found it.

We had the Reuben sandwiches. They were unique with the thick cut pastrami, but delicious. I am not a die-hard Reuben fan, but this was delicious. Sadly, most of the rest of the menu as far as sides and drinks were way overpriced.

In the mood for BBQ after beer tasting. Within minutes of Allagash and other breweries. Pricey but good and worth it.

It started with great, friendly and helpful service at the counter, the burger was tasty and I liked that the vegatable portion on the burger was more than usual. The mac’n cheese were delicious while the old school slaw was average. I really like that...More

The pulled pork was excellent! Service was great. They had a few nice beers on tap. There is not much seating on the inside and it is a casual atmosphere but parking is very limited.
