The barbecue was really nice. The meat was properly cooked and the sauce had less sweetness and more of an acidic tang than many places like this. Service was decent. I'd skip the deserts. The bread pudding was very marginal at best. If you're still hungry, have seconds of barbecue.

Dropped in mid-week about 5:30pm. They were quite busy, but we were able to get one of the last tables. Our waitress quickly took our drink order and gave us time to peruse the menu. The beer selection was just okay for me, with very few craft beer selections. The food menu was great with a nice selection of smoked... More

This is my go to place for ribs. I am also a big fan of the baked beans, potato salad and coleslaw. No store bought salads here. The only complaint is the collard greens, I think they had been cooking all day. The place is very clean and friendly.

Combined we had the pulled pork, chicken, beef, sausage, baked beans, collard greens, Cole slaw and potato salad. The chicken was cooked perfectly;... More

We were in Amherst for a hockey tournament and dropped in here for Saturday's dinner. What a great choice! Awesome ribs, chicken at good prices and outstanding service. Sadie was our terrific server. This place is friendly, unassuming, with a cozy feel and the best BBQ north of the Carolina's.

I tried the combo platter with the pulled pork and beef. The sauce is too sweet and sour for me, but all in all, it wasn't a bad dish. The platter came with two side dishes and I picked baked beans and collard green. The beans was way too sweet, and the collard was overcooked. I should have cut my... More

Best BBQ in Buffalo!! BBQ beans amd ribs are smoked to perfection! Also for appetizers try the chicken gumbo and banana peppers!! Awesome desserts all homemade! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Dont be fooled by exterior, definitely not like those chain restaurants!
