Not enough business to keep food fresh, Insects flying around the food being cooked outside. People walking up to smoker with nothing covering their head. Not the most healthy looking people carrying the food out to go and going in too.

Oh my, this place is awesome! Had the big platter so we can eat leftovers! Meat is tender and very flavorful! Sweet potatoes casserole, bacon mac & cheese, potato salad and baked beans were delicious! A definite stop again next year!!

Stopped after leaving ravine gardens and river front. You can walk over from parking area on the river front. 500 feet. Ordered pulled chicken wrap with side of Mac and cheese. Both good, did like the balance of pepper in the Mac and cheese. Thanks
