Delicious baked beans! Great potato salad! Three smokers running making pork, brisket and turkey. Yum! Turkey plate with 2 sides was $7. Great value. Found it on Google Maps after leaving Fort Defiance Park where the Ohio & Mississippi Rivers meet.

Ribs were sold out at 3:15 in the afternoon. Went for the brisket. Absolutely amazing. Potato salad was really good as were the baked beans. BBQ sauce is vinegar based and oh so good. Next time, I will get to Wickliff a little earlier to...More
