Our GPS didn't want us to eat here, but we persevered. It is really a carry out with tables, the food was tasty and a good portion of meat, but the sides were small.

Hi ivang1950, thanks for the review... we are in a rather busy area of town, apologies for the GPS confusion. Come back soon though!

This was really a takeaway with tables. You ordered at the counter and helped yourself to drinks. The quirky decor and good flavoured food made up for it. Had chicken dinner, tasty, but sides were small.

Last visit was several years ago when it first opened. Was in the area and stopped by again. Typical BBQ menu. Food was okay. Side servings were too small (baked beans, cole slaw, etc.). BBQ was ok. Noticed a lot of local frequented this location,...More

This is a nice casual BBQ joint, with a drive thru. Had the two meat combo with ribs and pulled pork, baked beans and brunswick stew. Everything was great, not too much smoke to overwhelm the meat, excellent flavors.
