Starting 20 Years Ago
It all started 20 years ago when the barbecue was brought to the beaches of the coast. With the space station right there, a lot of tourists coming and going and the beaches welcoming so many, it was the ideal spot to start. Charlie Johnson came from Alabama bringing the recipes with him. NASA transferred him and he started something brand new and delicious!
When it comes to listening to what the regulars have to say, it is something that the establishment takes in and learns from. You cannot be a great place serving people if you don’t listen to the people! With so many that have come here for years, it is always nice to see that we do actually change based on the feedback that we get. It only gets better from here!
