Great BBQ flavor and fantastic sized portions. This place is truly a gem with outstanding food despite its outside appearance. The service was great and the staff had a refreshing sense of humor. It was a great experience overall.

Dined solo, had BBQ chicken breast, tender, moist with a nice mild sauce. Smashed potatoes and Mac & cheese were very good as well. Table service was good, wait time wasn't bad.
