alpo. very uninspired bbq, almost ground chunks of meat in a sloppy over sweet sauce that tried to hide the tasteless meat. stew was better but there is no excuse for having a bbq joint with such a miserable sandwich. some one needs to tell the owner that just because it's hot doesn't make it good. if you like wet...
