The bbq was very sweet tasting and all the sauces were mustard based. The people were not friendly there or helpful at all.

We had the brisket and it was good. The parking is difficult but manageable. Service was friendly. The serving size on the sides was on the small side. We found the menu a bit confusing but staff cleared it up.
