Had the sliced beef brisket. Not the sandwich and it was wonderful. The salad and soup bar was excellant. Look around town for 15% off lunch coupon. I had cabbage and beef soup. It was packed with smoked beef and veggies. Wonderful.

We stopped in for a drink. I asked the bartender Bryan if he could make me a blackberry moonshine margarita. It was fantastic. Went back the next day twice for more. I haven't tried the food yet but the drinks are awesome.

We usually eat here at least once. Good portion size, cold beer and the "hog legs" are like big chicken legs but its ham off of the pig on a bone- the best part of the hog! Ribs are thick and relish!!

Hit Bennetts as a spur of the moment dinner. Food came out pretty quick. The fried pickles were pretty well "fried", they could have used about 1 less minute in the oil. BBQ was tasty but the sauces weren't what I was used to.
