The food has not improved (not worth the $) and now the owner (from TX) has made this place a political site. Conversations about local politicians and heated, angry and foul mouthed. Even if the food was good, the grumbling would ruin your appetite. I...More

If you want some real BBQ, drop everything you're doing and go to the Smokin' Q. By far the best BBQ and Trout I have had. Flavor in every bite and the portions are enough to split for two meals. I'd be guilty if I...More
