We have enjoyed the bbq sandwiches several times. The prices are very reasonable, friendly staff and clean too! We are planning on trying some other options but that is for a future visit. Next to the corner where you turn for Barber Marine

My family has always loved Tambo's. Their Bar-B-Q and sides are delicious. My fiance loves the brisket, I'm partial to the pulled pork. They've got great beans. You definitely need to go by!
