This place is by far the best BBQ you will find in Lake George. Their beef brisket is phenomenal, but so are their wings, ribs, chili, and cornbread. Their staff is friendly and the ambiance is rustic and comfortable.

Slow service seems to be an issue at several places we chose to eat. Food was very good...ordered brisket and bbq platters. They pkaced cronbread on the table and were attentive to our drink requests...but the wait for food and dessert was really long.

Sorry you experienced slow service. Unfortunately the town lost power that evening and we were one of the fee places that had power and were able to serve the public. We were busy and our servers had to overcome a very difficult moment.

I've had dinner here in the winter as well as the summer. The outdoor terrace in the summer is a really nice place to eat and I recommend highly their burgers. The service is always good.

Since 1991 we've been smokin' and sauce slingin' so we know how to cook - and treat barbeque with the respect it deserves. Our sauce is homemade in our kitchen in Lake George, NY, and our meats are seasoned & cooked to perfection. Ours is some of the best BBQ north of Memphis, and we aren't afraid to say so. But don't take our word for it, come and taste the sensation for yourself. Have us cater your next event!
