We went for lunch one day. The food was OK. It wasn't the best BBQ I've had or the worst either. I liked the decor a lot. They also serve your drinks in mason jars which is cute. Our waitress was very friendly.

Great BBQ Pork sandwich for 7.99, including slaw and a generous side. Three BBQ sauces are available at the table - sweet, tangy and regular. Brisket sandwich is also tasty. Good choice of appetizers and nightly specials. Munch on popcorn while waiting for your food.

A few of my co-workers and I went here on a Friday after work. None of us had ever been here before so we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a fun place to gather and have a few drinks,...More
