The food was pretty good overall. I was a little disappointed with the bbq sauce, which tasted fairly well, but I prefer a thicker sauce and a little sweeter. The waitress was really great and even the manager asked how things were. Overall, it was a good experience, but I probably wouldn't order the ribs again.


Stopped in for dinner and wow. I ordered the bbq sandwich with Mac and Cheese, both were full of flavor. The Dreamland sauce set the bbq over the top, so much so, I had to get 2 jars to take home with me. Next time in, I will try the ribs, which I’m sure are also good.

After years of wanting to try this place I finally did. It was somewhat of a disappointment. I had the pulled pork sandwich, the pork was excellent The bun however was so old and hard I couldn't even bite into it The guy that made the sandwich had to have known it. I did ask for a new bun and that was fine. The slaw with it was good. My grandson had wings and fries the wings were just okay and the fries were great. We also ordered a boneless rib tip quesadilla which came out full of 2 in long rib bones The meat was in an odd tasting sweet sauce and didn't taste barbecue smoke at all I would rate that as very poor. The service was okay I had to ask our server three times for sweet and low, I finally saw it behind the bar and got it myself No mention from him when he walked to the table and saw it, after he finally got off his cell phone. This was a first and last visit for us.
