I thought this was going to be a great BBQ experience but was actually some of the worst I have had. Fried pickles were cooked beyond recognition. BBQ ribs and pulled pork fair. Poor service. I won't be back.

Well, this place is a Pokestop. The tee-pee mentioned in the pokestop no longer exists, but it is still a pokestop none the less. I will say, that after being there for 20minutes the game started to glitch? And kept saying I was too far...More
