Good place to eat. Sometimes you can get a half off Groupon that is a great savings. Really like their barbecue.

Never a regretful decision. Always happy with the food and service. Very friendly staff and good prices. Best sauce hands down and the bbq grilling kits are a great price and have the best flavor.

Can't remember how long they have been in business, but it has always been top notch BBQ. I have been eating at Van's for at least 20 years, and have never been disappointed.
