Slow smoked meat prepared on site, not trucked in and re-heated! Locally owned. Burnt ends are killer! A must if you are traveling through Lincoln!

Great food, Great people, Reasonable price. What more could you ask. Rebs are better than I got at Ribfest. They support the community with the thrift store at the other end of the building.

After moving to a larger venue, there is more space to sit and enjoy. And believe me, they need it! Great local BBQ! I have not had a bad experience there ever. The most challenging aspect is getting there early enough to find a place...More
