Good place for brisket, pulled pork, chicken or ribs. Good sides but we miss the drunken apples. North woods decor. Good service.

We were there for Sunday lunch. Not a long wait even with 8 in our party. Service was above average. We always like their brisket but will change it up for smoked chicken or ribs once in a while.
