Solid meal with a nice homemade bbq sauce. Homemade sauce is mustard base with good flavor. Tried Baby Back Ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket and sausage. All were excellent and done well. Smoke flavor throughout.

Was craving a good bbq pulled pork and this place was recommended by the locals. It was a big disappointment. Their "home made special sauce" was basically just vinegar with a dab of ketchup for coloring! The pork wasn't cooked in any sauce so it...More

The kind of smoky-semi-sweet that pairs perfectly with the ribs and brisket!
