Had dinner here with friends and tried a few dishes. The service was awesome and the food the same. Prices are very reasonable including the drinks. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. If your in the area do yourself a favor and give it a try.

Dinner with my Valentine! They take reservations, although we didn't need them. Plenty of seating and great service. Great selection of craft beer on tap, best BBQ. We always get the sampler platter and tonight added buffalo bacon blue fries. Oh my! A few blocks off the main drag, you have to know of it to find it. Worth it.

Excellent BBQ menu with pulled pork, wings, ribs, and some great sides too. The BBQ pork chili was something worth stopping for all by itself. Never had anything like that and it was delicious. The wide beer selection was good too. Plenty of unique flavors to choose from. My only complaint is the hard wood chairs. Not comfortable at all.... More

We had a group of 7 and went for supper. I was intrigued by the local beer menu and finally tried a blackberry malt (very good!!!). We ordered a variety plate of the BBQ offerings and it was plenty for my wife and I...left wings on the plate...BBQ was decent...service was very good as well.

A group of us went to grab a beer and some snacks. Packed to the gills. Happily, they could seat us right away and the brew list was very good. Some cornbread and buter was a great complement to the beer. Wings were decent and meaty but not over the top. Good choice for a quick snack and beer. Not... More

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. Business was slow so the service was excellent. Our meals arrived promptly and were tastier than we had anticipated. Our server was attentive without being obnoxious. Overall an excellent experience and we will return.

Thank Spanish B
