    My mother-in-law was living with us for the past 7 months. We took her to Bub A Que in early April. We have been going here for a couple of years now as we saw them on a BBQ cook off on the food channel. My mother-in-law fell in love with the food and we came at least twice a week while she was in Woodstock with us. We love the food, the barbeque sauce and the service. Nice people, great food, good time when we go there to eat. We have shipped sauce to Montana and Vermont, enjoyed by all.
