    Trying to be Paleo? Kind of difficult here, but if you get the spinach salad, blackened chicken, no feta or croutons and lemon oregano dressing you should be good to go. Unless its a cheat day Bahaha!

    Great food, friendly service, what more can you ask for? Had the ribs, smoked turkey, and pulled pork... They were amazing!! Will return to this place when in the area!

    Fried pickles were a good way to start. The grilled wings were also really good. And at least I felt a little healthy since they weren't fried. Really nice beer selection.

    We went once and the food was good but the other two times it was just horrible. Fried pickles with the batter sitting mostly in the basket and a very dry pork bbq
