Place looks like what you'd expect an authentic BBQ place to look like! It has that rustic look. Really good food I highly recommend it!

At the front of the Cahokia RV Park, people pack in this pleasant, traditional BBQ place. We ate there twice, the brisket, pulled pork and ribs are all excellent, as are the side such as macaroni salad, baked beans and onion rings

Great BBQ and great family service. The pulled pork sandwich for lunch was very filling with two sides. The service cant be beat, especially if Britney is running the show.

This place has some great BBQ. All of us thought the brisket, pulled pork sandwich, and turkey sandwich were worth the stop.
