We usually stay at Hershey Farm during the summer. This time we visited for Thanksgiving and it was just as nice.

Feels like a fast food restaurant but with sit down prices. Authentic BBQ, you see the smokers going out back and the food is very good. If paper plates and plastic utensils don't bother you give it a try.

Terrible place to eat,,they drown everything in BBQ sauce..The food doesn't taste like it's barbecued: I don't know why they even call it that. You need to try harder Jake, Sorry.

Local made variety of BBQ flavors meat pulled dishes. Ala carte sides of foods and deserts. You pay for what you get vs pay and eat your $'s worth.

Used to love this place for BBQ and funnel cake after browsing THE OUTHOUSE. However, the last time we went I felt sick afterwards.

The barbeque was loaded with over sugared BBQ sauce and the portions were very small. The service left a lot to be desired, They did not seem to very customer oriented. Would definitely stay away from this place.

Didn't like this indoor outdoor eatery nearby my favorite Out House novelty store. Though they are looking to make ribs their center of attraction, other foods are available.
