This is the best BBQ ever. It is so nice to find a place where the food is delicious beyond statement. It is just like the BBQ joints in Kansas City or down South.

This has become a new favorite in our rotation of local restaurants. I had the pulled pork sandwich with mashed sweet potatoes. The sandwich was delicious! I keep wanting to rave about the sweet potato mash, but it just doesn't do it for me. It's...More
