Went with family and friends for a meal. Can smell the coals as you get closer to it. Inside was decent but due to popularity there is alot if traffic walking back and fourth at some tables.

Highly recommend the ribs but the first come first served warning is for any item. Family member was disappointed they couldn't get the hotdogs but happynto try again and alternative was just as good!

I'd give it five stars but service was a but sluggish and the time between ordering and meal arrival was lengthy, about 15 minutes waiting on our starters.

Otherwise great stuff, it's a tight market with bbq and grill houses across Bristol so you aren't missing out on too much other than their own recipes on some dishes. Bbq grill is pretty universal wherever you go and these people certainly know how to cook a solid dish. But not one that's going to change the state of bbq as you know it.

Food is very good and atmosphere and service even better. We were there for the first day of the new menu. We were a little disappointed at the price increase as my friend usually has the St Louis rib an she said the price had gone up an the portion gone down. But that's my only quarm really as wine was very good and good value for the house white. Servers were friendly and not overly attentive (which I prefer!) I will definately go again!!! Nacho wings were amazing!!!

Four of us ate here last night. Service was really good. The Spanish waitress was very helpful and efficient. We started with some lamb pops to start which were very tasty. I then opted for the spitfire st louis rib, and wow I’m so glad I did. It was so tasty and juicy a little bit steep in price at £22 but tasted very nice. The rest of the group also enjoyed their mains which included the half chicken and a hot dog. Will definitely return when I’m in the mood for some more ribs.

Visited with a party of six, service was slightly slow but was well worth the wait for the tremendous food. Had the bacon cheeseburger which was great, tasty, moist and nowhere near as greasy as other similar restaurants, dirty fries were delicious but the slaw was utterly stunning and the best I've ever had. Really enjoyed.
