This restaurant was an amazing find, well worth the scenic drive out route 2. As the name implies, BBQ is their specialty. They make their own thick, tasty sauce and slow cook the meats in their smoker. The result is an unbelievably moist, smoky flavored dinner. I had the chicken, and my husband had the pulled pork, and we were both blown away. But this place has a lot more than BBQ to offer. The salads consisted of farm-fresh veggies (no pale iceberg lettuce here!), the corn-on-the-cob was from a local grower, and the jalapeno cheddar cornbread was a creative treat. There are many other items on the menu, including vegetarian options and seafood. Eight BBC offerings are on tap, with a sampler tray available for those not familiar with the brewery (or for those who can't pick just one brew!). Dessert options sounded intriguing, but we simply didn't have any room left to try them! The service was friendly and attentive, and the owner was present to ensure that everyone had an optimal dining experience. I'm already planning a return trip less than one week after my first visit!
