Out of The Way but worth the trip.

Amazing real smoked BBQ ribs and chicken. The place itself is nothing fancy and very basic and plain. The food makes up for the decor. Highly recommended for smoked ribs and chicken lovers!

I've been to this place in the past and it was good. This time we made reservations at 6pm. We arrived on time and we were seated. Only to be told that they were out of ribs. We go to a BBQ place for ribs and to be told that they are out that early is very disappointing. We ended... More

If you are a meat eater this is the place for you. The brisket is the best in the city, and my wife who is not the biggest meat will fight me for the last chicken wing lol Amazing food at very reasonable prices, and staff are always a pleasure to deal with. We go there from Barrhaven regulary, and... More

Bring your appetite. A little out of the way with a history but oh so worth it. If you're craving smoked BBQ protein this is the place. Armadillo eggs are amazing and the mixed platter good to try if it's your first time.

Fantastic southern BBQ. I wish they were further north in Kanata or in Centrum. The sauce is great. Do yourselves a favour and pick some up.

We had a good experience at this out and away place. We(a group of 10) showed up at the smokehouse for lunch and we were seated next to a larger group. I was surprised at the fast and good service, as well as the fast delivery of our order without mistakes. The food was good flavorful and plenty. We had... More

My room mate and I decided to try this restaurant after hearing of the place from some co-workers. They said it was pricey but they raved about the food. We were shown to a booth and once seated we had a look at the menus. My friend was shocked at the prices listed and quite frankly they are steep when... More

I thought I already wrote this review but in short this place is simply amazing!! Best ceasar salad with chicken, best platters, real smoked flavors, excellent service, not too busy, not too far from Ottawa and amazing deserts. They have smoked cheesecake and a smoked cheesecake milkshake to die for!!

Place was clean, service was good and portions were generous. I ordered the ribs, wife had the brisket/pulled pork combo. My ribs were good but a little tough. Her pulled pork had a vinegary kind of dressing and the brisket was spicey. (she asked for something not spicey) She was expecting a bbq sauce type of dressing on the meat.... More

Best BBQ I've had outside of the deep south USA. My wife and I ordered a combo/meat platter to share and it was phenomenal. More than enough food, tender and tasty, great value. Very worthwhile.
