Very limited menu,but everything is very good. Brisket with the mild sauce was wonderful-not at all greasy,had some kick,not sweet, on a BIG Kaiser roll. Line moved quickly at 12 pm.

Tucked inside the Trenton Farmer's Market is the best barbecue in NJ. No frills, just outstanding ribs, brisket, chicken and pork. Two sides- baked beans a slaw, both excellent. A must.

Pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken or ribs all are good. Family loves their rolls, I love their beans & slaw. Can get BBQ sauce regular or extra spicy and on the side. Treat to eat.

This is a hidden gem in the Farmer's Market. Give it a try, the Q is fresh and tasty and the sides compliment well.
