Love this place. Best brisket in town by a long shot! The wings are also amazing. They have a ghost pepper sauce that works perfectly with everything. It's nice to finally see a BBQ joint actually good real BBQ.

This stark, casual BBQ place was pretty good, One great Bartender and server did everything perfectly. My meal was fall-apart tender ribs but my husband's was light on volume. and brisket was only OK

I've only had the burgers here, not the bbq. The burgers have been ok, but nothing special, and not worth the price. Good service. I will return to try the 'q.'

Can only give it three stars due to slow service. Food was nice. Brisket burger was yummy and plenty of fries. Texas trio looked good sausage is amazing. That's where it ends. I can't go back to this place because the service was so slow...More

Sorry, but this place just didnt make the cut. Poor service and mediocre food at a slightly inflated price. If everything else is closed, including Denny's, on a holiday you may want to consider this place.

go for Texas trio and you won't miss! We got there late and were served even technically after closing time. The food and service were excellent.

Best BBQ in town. Love this place eating in and love ordering to go as well. I was craving a steak and went there instead... they never disappoint. Great service, food and drinks too! Definitely not your average bbq joint. Will post pictures next time!
