The BBQ is really pretty good, the restaurant is very casual, informal, basic BBQ setup, minimal service but everyone is very nice. Its clean. It's easy to drive by the place so keep you eyes open on the right coming from 45.

Stopped by on the return trip for lunch. The fried fish and baked potato were well seasoned and tasted great. The cobbler and ice cream was a treat! (served hot and fresh). This is a popular stop but still fast. Highly recommended!
