This is by far the most disappointed I've been in a restaurant. The food looks great and with the high prices, you trust that you'll love what you'll get. The food quality is really low, if any. My friend even sent his back to the...More

We cut our french fries every day from whole potatoes and they're cooked skin-on. This group was quite vocal about their surprise of our style of fries, which is our most popular side dish. We happily took them off the bill. We were a bit...More

Very delicious food, I ordered the beef brisket sandwich and the taste was amazing . However the onion rings were a bit oily for my taste.

I have eaten a lot of burgers. The beef brisket was one of the best. My fiance found a bit of plastic in hers but wasn't much of a downer. More of a surprise

Had the brisket sandwich which had a good Smokey flavour and the fried were great. I would suggest to the owners that they should provide a home made bbq sauce that customers could put on fiercest if they choose to. Good selection of beers and...More

Tried the pulled pork sandwich and the brisket sandwich. Pulled pork was delicious, but the brisket was the best brisket I've ever had! Seriously amazing! Sides were a nice kicker also. Great little bbq spot, the meat smoker was legit!
