It's a small unassuming BBQ place that's been around for many years. Though my favorite are the Steak Fingers, The BBQ is pretty good too. Friendly people and decent service It has a meeting / party room if you need one.

For Barbeque, it's probably the best in the Basin. Potato Salad and sliced onions, beans, pickled and sliced meats. It's not bad.
