This is the best BBQ spot on the Peninsula. I go for the chicken and the ribs, but on my last trip, I tried the Au Gratin Potatoes and was surprised to find that they were fantastic. Don't miss them.

What you expect you get with great flavors and quantity. Good BBQ with ample portions and freshly cooked. If there is anything more then maybe the location is difficult to find a parking space. That is probably the greatest compliment!
