If you're looking for fancy dining, look elsewhere. However if your tastes lead you to the finest smokes ribs and brisket this side of Memphis, this is your destination. No frills, just excellent down home cooking that's smoked to perfection.

Very friendly cashier helping newer guest understand all their great options. Lots of great choices and BBQ sauces for all. Come hungry This newer location is nicer than the old strip mall they were in last year down the street. Keep up the great effort.

I've had better, I've had worse. Would I return? Not really thought the sauces are novelty and range from sweet to searing and the meat is prepared to be a foil.

Locally owned, locally sourced ingredients. 14 hours of slow smoking for southern style BBQ. This is a rare find in Minnesota. A real gem! Also, this was featured on Man vs. Food on the Travel Channel recently.
