We stopped in for a quick dinner on our way home from work. Everything was fresh, hot and just as BBQ should be. We will be back soon. The brisket was amazing.

My wife’s sister took us while up there visiting for the week. The food was awesome and my 2 year old son fell in love with our waitress. Will go back when we are up that way again
