The Exxxtra Hot Sauce looked like a challenge but it is actually minus, minus, minus hot sauce as it has only a... More

Love Pink Flamingo! One of our favorite places. We can share the Judges Platter and still have leftovers. They also have strawberry cake that is awesome. Brisket, ribs, pork loin what can I say!

it's good BBQ, and the portions are decently sized. Just expect to spend around $12 or $14 a person. We could have/should have shared entrees. Friendly folks.
