Located near Arbor Lakes Mall off of 94. 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.

Celebrating birthday party with a group of 13. Lots of food and different options to please everyone. Cheerful staff and great service. Restaurant was packed on a Friday evening. The piece de resistance was a huge bowl of brownie with vanilla ice cream served with sparkled candle at the end. Highly recommend!

We were somewhat disappointed. My husband’s chopped pork and catfish fingers were good, but the corn on the cob was tasteless and sodden, as though it had been swimming in a bath of hot water for hours. While my barbecue chicken was juicy, it wasn’t very warm. Our server, Michele, was the best part of the experience. The noise level was pretty high, even though the restaurant wasn’t quite full on a Friday night.

Reservations for 12
Couldn’t accommodate for all to sit together as a family.
It was very busy in the restaurant so service was lacking a little.
Food was just ok nothing to get excited about.
Bar drink was really good (Long Island ice tea)
Would not recommend for large parties.

We ordered a feast for 2. The food was good, but not nearly as plentiful as it used to be. Our server was not very attentive, visited the table only 3 times: once to deliver drinks, once very late in the meal to fill our empty glasses and once to bring our check. He never did ask us how the food was.

The food was just ok, Service was just fair, and the wait staff have seemed more inattentive since COVID, (understaffed?). On a previous visit, we were seated by a hostess and after waiting about 15-20 minutes without even getting acknowledged, we got up and walked out. Quite honestly, I’m not sure we’ll be coming back anytime soon.
