I was pleasantly surprised to find, in my hometown, a very good barbecue place. In Texas it's BBQ. It might not be as good as the BBQ you can get south of the Mason Dixon line, but it is really good.

PROS *Service was great. *Pulled pork and brisket weren’t bad. CONS * Pulled pork and brisket weren’t great either. *Ribs were slightly burnt. *BBQ sauces were very sweet, like some weird Kool-Aid flavor.

Friendly service, delicious food. There is another BBQ restaurant located in Ridgefield with a much bigger on line presence and an owner who knows marketing. But this place has better BBQ! The ribs are delicious. Great sauces. Outside seating as well. And some live music.

We decided to try then after HooDoo had an hour and 15 minute wait. We liked hoodoo but their waits are insane and I don't find the staff over the top pleasant. When we go up that way we always pass the Wire Mill. Well...More
