Long Description:
First off lets set the basics of any notable BBQ, it has to be good. Big Hoffa"s scores well on that easily. The meat has a nice smoky flavor that will stand on its own. Add to that a light not overpowering sauce that compliments the meat rather than drown it and you have on of their pulled pork sandwiches. Delicious.

But about the pirates... Yes the theme of the inside is all about pirates. Its a little baffling for a BBQ novice but pick up a menu and read it over. You will find a bit about the history of BBQ and it will pull it all together for you. It really does make sense once you read it.

As a unusual twist if you are into antiques, or just always been curious to stop in to one of those shops your going to like this place as well. It is oddly situated in the end section of a antique store. Now it is a restaurant on its own and not a cracker barrel type of place. It just happens to be adjoined to a antique store that's all and the back door exits straight into it. Kid of a bonus so to speak. Some might think that strange but a little background on Big Hoffa's would lead you to find out that Big Hoffa was forced to open a restaurant! Yep thats right forced into it. Big Hoffa's operated for several years as a BBQ stand (I believe at th Family Video store but I's not sure on that). In any case the city kept giving him temporary permits to run his stand in the parking lot for years and finally decided they were no longer going to give him any more "temporary" permits. They gave him notice he had to find a permanent place to run his business if he was going to continue. So fortunately for us he found this rather unique location, one I am sure you will enjoy.
