Nothing fancy..your old school type roadside BBQ joint with fantastic BBQ. I have tried everything on the menu and it is great. Great trip destination if you like to ride your bikes...either peddle or motor! My favorite are the BBQ ribs.

My family loved it. I didn't like so much because i like bbq sauce not rub. But i would tell people go try it.

Great place for bbq. Ribs and brisket are the best. Easy to locate and get a parking spot. Dining is outdoors under cover. Convenient hours (11 -7).

A summer only very popular BBQ place. Good food; chicken or pork. Be aware you stand in line to order and can eat at semi-protected from the weather tables. Quite often there is entertainment and/or a car show going on. Closes at 7 pm.
