Please see additional pandemic protocal notes below our menu:

We are open for dine-in service and walk-in take out. We do not take reservations.

Hours are Thursday & Friday 11:30 to sellout (or 8 PM)- Sunday & Saturday 12 noon to sellout (or 8 PM) Sellout is when we start to have significant sell out of key items. Because our foods take from 4 to 12 hours to cook and are served fresh off the cooker, we run out of items periodically and start to sell out of many before 8 PM most nights.

Thank you for being our guest.

Please check back often!

Guests & Friends,

COVID has adversely impacted our staffing. When we reopened in March, we believed that limiting take-out ordering to walk-in only would reduce demand to a manageable level. This policy has only been partially successful.

During peak hours we are experiencing greater demand for take-out than we can supply. In the short term, we must place further restrictions on availability.  Going forward, we do hope to be able to expand our hours and add additional services to help more people get their BBQ.

Take-out orders will continue to be offered to walk-in guests only, and all take-out orders will be limited to 6 entrees or less (the same size as our largest table). We simply do not have the capacity to take orders over the phone or process bulk take-out. As our dining room fills up, take-out wait times may be 45 minutes or more. When our dining room is full, some items may be limited to in-house only.

We will install a “wait time” sign in clear view of Water Street with the current wait time for a table or for take-out.

In June we be will setting up an outdoor dining area with a tent. This will expand our in-house capacity and offer full-service guests a different option to eating inside.

In June we will also be opening our “Fair Stand” on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, from lunch through late afternoon. Inside service is closed on those days and the stand will offer sandwiches and sides to walk-up guests, with the outdoor dining area available. We will also be opening the Fair Stand for the Friday night music series presented by the Grant building in the back parking lot.

Finally, we are working to increase the supply of our family and individual “meats to reheat” and sides in our Fast-Fresh-Now cooler at the take-out point of sale. This service has been popular for people on the go.

Our primary objective has always been to produce quality foods, world class BBQ, delicious beverages, and friendly table service for our dine-in guests. Our second objective is to offer those products to take-out guests. We have limited resources and will not sacrifice quality for volume.

We appreciate your understanding.

Michael Quigg   Owner/Chef

Please note: During peak times when our waiting area is congested, we have to request that you place your take-out order or get on our waiting list and then wait outside and we will call you when your order or your table is ready.

When the waiting area is not congested, we will be glad to offer a drink while you wait inside.

Thank you for your understanding. Pandemics suck 😦

Masks are required at all times unless seated.
