Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

I wanted to take my parents out for lunch/dinner. We got the family package and it was enough for all of us 7 (5 adults and 2 kids) and we still had leftovers.

The service was great and not so much noise.

We had a gift card that turned out to be empty but the manager was so sweet about it. Apparently the person that purchased the card for us was rob of the $40 they tried to put on the card. The manager tried several times and then told us the gift card was empty : ( . He apologized (not his fault or doing) and then gave us a discount on our meal. He didn't need to but it was a nice gesture.
The food was good (as always) and service was good too.
We'll be back. : )

When we first got there, the first waiter we got had a very bad attitude. Almost like he was annoyed by us being there. My Supervisor had to go and talk to the Manager because it was so bad! However, your management assigned us another waitress. And she was excellent! Food was delicious, and the birthday boy enjoyed himself!

I put in a special request it was my Fiancé’s birthday and it was ignored. The server got the order wrong and didn’t check up on us at all after serving us our food. I am a regular I always have gotten excellent service but this last experience was unacceptable. Very disappointing.

We were so impressed by our waiter who took our order without writing it down and there were seven of us he remembered everything brought everything out that was delicious and hot and kept refilling our drinks we didn’t even have to ask there again he didn’t even have to ask again what each one had he just remembered what a great guy you had on staff. And two of my friends who have never been there were very pleased with the bottle of barbecue sauce thank you so much we had a wonderful time

The food was amazing. We both had the two meat combo. Maybe could put a little more smoked turkey on plate without the bread. But the rest of the plate there was plenty of food.

I had the BBQ chicken dinner with fries and broccoli and it was all hot and good. Hubby had a slab of ribs and said that they were not as tender as he would have wanted, a little chewy.

Our server was attentive at first but couldn't find her later when one person in our party needed to pay her check, had to asked someone else to find out where her credit card had gone. Probably had to wait close to 10 minutes.
