My favorite place for BBQ. We picked up two dinners to take home. They smelled divine all the way home. AND REASONABLE in a very expensive area.

The barbecue here is the best in the upper valley. Service is uneven, but just get it to go and take back to your place. Grab your beer at the gas statiomn across the street and enjoy!
