Cons: Long wait, mediocre barbeque

I like the idea of having a different burger, and I have been there a couple of times. Be aware the clerk is not too nice and when I asked why my burger took 25 minutes, they just said: go to McDonalds if you are in a hurry. Food is OK,

This place is a great BBQ because there is no other in the area. The tri tip is my favorite, but I have also had the ribs, chicken, and links. All are good because of the sauce. We normally go in a group

The burger is a wopping 1 bl, but it is so delicious with a good grilled smoky flavor. I must admit that one pound is really way too much food for me, but the taste is what I really enjoyed. I wished that I could order a half of a pound

I come here for the burgers. They are big, made to order and the beef is of high quality. The meat is so big, it dwarfs the bun. They should find a better bun supplier. Try the fries, they are also quite yummy.
