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.

Awful customer service. Our server Terry didn’t send over the manager when my spouse asked to see a manager.
We were not asked if we wanted refills on our drinks. We had soda and water.

My spouse did leave a 15% tip even though the service was awful

. At the end, the server, Terry came over to our table and sarcastically said to my spouse, thank you for leaving a tip. Unbelievable. I wonder what the manager would have said about this server?

Hi. We came in from Illinois for an event. Service was good. Kinda Slow getting our checks. But we didn't know we could pay ourselves. That's would've been good information. The burnt ends wasn't what I thought it would be. But the Brisket was Bomb!! Delicious and tender! Next time we're in town we will eat here again. And I'm getting that Brisket!

Waited over 5 minutes for the Greeter to arrive. The restaurant was NOT busy. The food was warm, not hot, when served. The burnt ends were very fatty. The table service was OK. It seemed like the workers were more interested in cleaning up to get ready to close than they were in providing good service and food.
