By far this hits home. I’ve grown very fond of the Ellis family over the years. This is my favorite bbq restaurant. My family and I ride up at least twice a month to grab some of this delicious food. My prayers will continue for Mr. Ellis’ family. He’s definitely made an impact in my family’s life. Rest In Peace.
