Smokin' Coop - Belvidere IL (now w/pics)

Just west of Belvidere IL on Business Route 20 is a seasonal barbecue place called Smokin' Coop. I didn't know about it until I passed by yesterday and it's closed for the season, but I'm wondering if anyone here has eaten there. According to my parents it's been in business for a few years now (hey, THANKS for telling me about it!!) but they've never stopped, apparently because the "facilities" consist of a couple of port-o-lets. I'll definitely have to find my way there next summer.

Years ago the site was a go-kart track and it looks like Smokin' Coop building might be the original structure from the track, but it's been so long that I can't remember if it torn down or not. As an interesting aside it's next door to Ned's Restaurant, which for as long as I can remember was the strip club Frank Gay's Marquee.
