Best BBQ in the Illinois Valley! Burnt ends and brisket are always excellent and their specials are something to keep you on your toes. I honestly look forward to what's on the menu next!

This is quite the quaint barbecue joint! Great food!! Would recommend everything we ate, but especially the burnt ends and St. Louis style ribs. Really good cheesy hash browns too! Quite a few good options to choose from. The decor is very realistic rustic, creating a very neat atmosphere. The service was efficient and friendly. I kind of hope I end up back in Peru soon so I can get a chance to eat here again!

Such delicious food! I tried the ribs, brisket and wings. While they were all tasty. My favorite were the wings. They had 6 different sauces for you to use while indulging. I will be coming back every time I’m nearby. They had great service and a friendly staff. Fun bar atmosphere but also tables for families w/ kids.

Probably the best Moscow Mule I've ever had. The pulled pork and ribs are amazing. Their sauce is amazing. Definitely going to be a return visit in my future.

If you’re looking for a great smoke house…. This is the place!!! Amazing service, clean and beautiful. Stone and brick walls, wood ceilings and a beautiful bar will make your visit a dream. We tried pulled pork, brisket and ribs…all of them were great. Sides were good too. But the peach- chipotle bbq sauce was the winner.
