Fodor's Review

The lines often stretching out the door of this log cabin building are a testament to the tasty, tender "New Mexico–style" barbecue for which this down-home joint is known. Beef, pork, turkey, and chicken are given deluxe smokehouse treatment and then slathered with in-house secret sauces. Sides—like Elsie's garlic potatoes, mustard potato salad, and Southern-style biscuits—come with the plates served by the gregarious, friendly staff. Meals are served to-go only, but there's a big, covered side porch and another open one out front to eat on. The pies are the only disappointment here.
