      why thank you scott,
      we're staying at south point the first friday we arrive. planned on doing the primarily prime rib at sp. looks like we have some place to try for lunch now. if the food is half as good as it looks we should be pleased and might have to try it again. i'll keep you posted on our results.
      keep em comin everybody !!

        Frankly, I'd go to Arby's before eating at Cajun BBQ Shack again. My God what a miserable meal. Dry, tasteless brisket and ribs so chewy that my wife could eat half of one. Most of the food went into the trash.

          it's amazing how one person can have such a good experience while another has such a bad. at this point i think i'll ask for a sample and go from there. dazed and confused!!!
          thanks shamu
          anybody else????
