Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon and had to wait 1/2 hour for a table. They were out of some of the menu items, but what we did have was very good. It was quite expensive.

Cool spot...but very cramped. Food and drinks were great. I had the Meat Mountain (or something like that) and it was well seasoned, the meat was tender and I was stuffed. Also tried a wing from my friend's plate. DEFINITELY would recommend the wings.

I ordered the smoked rib, pulled pork with coleslaw and mac and cheese. The meat was one of the best I ever had. Unfortunately I was not a fan of mac and cheese.

If you like smoked meats and southern bbq, this place is a must. The loaded buffalo fries are amazing! Enough to share with 4 people. All of our dishes were fantastic. My daughter highly recommends the cobbler. You can’t go wrong with any of the...More

Excellent BBQ. Some of the best around. Fast service. If you want ribs make sure to ask your server when they greet you. Sometimes they run out. Additionally, the portions are huge and easy to share. Nice draft best selection. Definitely need to try.
