This is arguably the best barbecue joints I've ever dined at! We stayed 3 nights at our hotel and went here two of the three days. We would have gone all three days but one day we got back after their operating hours. Great portions for fair prices. We tried their brisket, pork belly, tri-tip, and burgers.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had such good BBQ. The restaurant has a really nice outdoor area when it’s nice out, where there are some lawn games (like cornhole!) to pass the time while you’re waiting for and/or digesting your food. Of course everything looked good and we couldn’t decide on just one item, so we opted for the large combo meal to get a little of everything. Needless to say, we left very satisfied. Highly recommended if you’re in the area!
