The food here is amazing. Great BBQ, we had Brisket, ribs, chicken and all the fixings. The corn bread is sensational, I would have eaten it all vacation long. We downloaded coupons online- but were'nt allowed to use them in store which didnt make sense.

Business meeting of three at lunch. The menu had a good and healthy sounding grilled chicken salad but the waiter sold against it claiming prep would take 30 minutes. Since we could not wait ordered the pulled pork plate with coleslaw (good) and a choice...More

Stopping for one night at the nearby Intercontinental on 9th March and LOVE BBQ. I think this is a silly question but is it worth crossing the highway? Robin,England
