Really liked this place. They were out of ribs. Ended up having chopped pork plus 2. Sandwich was very good. All sauce mustard base. Employees were extremely nice.

Absolutely the BEST BBQ place for miles!! If the line is long, it's definitely worth the wait! The ribs are the biggest, juiciest, tastiest ribs and half a slab only $6!! So go for lunch or get there early for dinner. Their chipped sandwich is full of meat and only 99cents. You won't be disappointed. We eat there every week!
