We had a amazing gigantic banana split there the other day. They are so good and one person might be able to eat but you would be better sharing this thing! You have got to try this.

The BBQ is pretty good. Typical vinegar based BBQ. The place was packed for a weekday lunch. The red slaw is different but not bad. The service quick and friendly. The price is decent.
