“Glad I discovered this place. Nice setting with very reasonably priced delicious BBQ. I especially like the turkey which was very moist and had a great peppery flavor. Too many other BBQ places have tasteless turkey, and this was a pleasant change. The Sauces came in a couple of different varieties. I tried the sweet sauce, and enjoyed it very much.” – Pop C.
