The restaurant will offer barbecue staples like brisket, ribs, pulled pork, sausage, chicken, and sandwiches. There will also be daily specials as well as burgers and appetizers along with a full range of domestic and local beers. Breakfast will include a selection of smoked meat breakfast burritos and freshly baked cinnamon rolls, scones and muffins.

“The hours will be from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Easter, our normal business hours,” Christensen said. “There are people who don’t have the opportunity to go eat with their family, So we figured we would do regular breakfast, lunch and dinner. It will be our normal prices, nothing will be changed, but we will feature a smoked ham.”
