brisket was average - portions were good - service was great and attentive. Would give it another try just because of the service. Our server was great !

I love this place. The BBQ is real not frozen and reheated like some BBQ chains. All the sides are made from scratch. I love that you can pick your own sides! Great selection of beverages too!

Very good food! We often head there for lunch since we work right around the corner. Fast service and food quality is very good. Don't miss the homemade succotash! Yes -- I said succotash. It is amazing!

We've been to the Hudson location and loved it, but just moved to the area and wanted to try the original. It did not disappoint. The pulled pork nachos are so addictive, though they put a little too much sauce on this time, we finished...More
