Love the stuffed potato, but anything on the menu is good. Order at the counter and seat yourself. Cozy little place. Busy at lunch most days.

Great place to pick up BBQ to go; seating inside also. Brisket, Sausage, Hot Links, and Ribs are all delicious.

Love their barbecue choices, note that they are only open for lunch and early dinner since they close at 7PM. Go here for the food and not the ambiance.
