Never been in such a sardine sized restaurant! We were practically sitting in the band's lap! Waitress's carrying everything above your head. Four adults had to sit sideways, and eat and drink with one hand. Absolutely ridiculous.

this place has good smoked meats.. the burnt end and ribs are my favorites I have eaten there a couple of times, and would return.

Glad it is closed, worst burnt ends ever. Mushy, fatty globs of goo. Previous owners offered up better...

This place closed over a year ago, another BBQ place opened called Ozark BBQ on the strip as they have another location. Not sure if they will reopen this season or not, have heard a pizza place is moving back in.

this place is now called Ozark BBQ... and is under new ownership.We drove from California MO to have burnt ends, and were told they didn't have them this time of year, and had just sold their last burger... so we had to go elsewhere to eat lunch... on a Saturday afternoon.... at 2pm!

Very good BBQ. It's a relaxed environment and you can sit and have a drink and talk with people as you wait for a to go order. Nice and great food.

As BBQ went, I was hoping for better. I had the burnt end sandwich and I was told it was the best in town. Well, I've been to some other joints on the lake and it didn't measure up. The sauce was bland, neither sweet nor spicy, just bland. I can't recommend it.

brisket was great but the staff snotty and honestly not quite what we expected. We did enjoy the food however would recommend they make their own signature sides rather than using frozen French fries and stuff of that nature. The pork was good and the signature bbq sauce not bad

We stopped in for lunch. Two of our party had the brisket philly and one had the smoked turkey wrap. The food quality was very good, and the price was great.
