Casual and friendly place. I like the pork sandwich and the beef brisket is also good. They allow dogs at tables out by the smokers.

We were there about a week and a half ago. If you're looking for fancy, don't go! If your looking for GREAT smoked ribs, etc, this is THE place to get them! You won't go away hungry, either!
