BBQ lunch here consisted of pork ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken, burnt ends, onion rings that were thick cut and brisket. All of the items were juicy and had great flavor that was complemented by the three different types of barbecue sauce that was available to you. You could get the sweet, spicy, or the vinegar-based BBQ sauce. I recommend you share a couple of different meals so that way you can have a taste of everything. When we were there for lunch they didn't have live musicians playing but there was a stage setup and I understand that they get local talent that plays at night. Be prepared though because lots of people have said that when there is live music the tables fill up quickly.

We were seated an hour before the band was supposed to start playing. We were going to eat a good meal, have drinks, catch up with friends and stay for the music. NOT remotely possible. Service was incredibly slow and the band started playing an hour earlier than advertised. They were SO loud that it was impossible to hear anyone; even sitting right next to you, at the back of the restaurant. There is limited outdoor seating but those tables were taken first-no surprise. The food was very good but the slow service and deafening music made it better as a bar and less so for a dining destination.

Wait staff seemed to be a little off and preoccupied. We ordered drinks and nachos. My glass seemed to have permanent lipstick marks on it. Drinks came after food, just a little disappointing after reading all the great reviews. I would give it another shot.
