I met a friend for lunch and the service was prompt and the food arrived quickly (an important thing for a lunch date). The BBQ was spot on and the waitress friendly. I really enjoyed the neighborhood and the atmosphere of the restaurant.

Great BBQ and a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. On weekend nights they also have good music that you would find in larger cities.

This was in an old firehouse built in the 1860's, adding a nice historical touch. Ribs were great, although when they say "fall off the bone" that means picking up the bones means they completely fall off! You need a fork to eat them. But...More
