Once again, I wanted to give this lovely restaurant a try but came away disappointed. The space is fabulous, with an upscale urban look but the food and service just does not add up. I ordered a 1/4 pound beef brisket which was quite tasty but the accompanying Texas Caviar was way over salted (and I usually do add salt... More

The pulled pork and brisket sandwichs and choice of many bbq sauces is delicious - as is the mac n cheese side. Wish they had fries as an option though! The only negative is that the prices have recently gone up so you can't really get two meals there without paying almost $25 The bar is also a nice place... More

Really great selection of BBQ choices from pork, chix, beef and sausage. The collards are the best and don't miss out on the great selection of beer.

The pulled pork is good, and you have several sauces to experiment with. Great stop for an early lunch--good mac 'n cheese and other sides.

This is a perfect spot to get your bbq fix. Your order at the counter and take a seat. I ordered the nachos with pulled pork and had a minute of "ordering remorse", but they were delicious. You wouldn't think that the toppings would go well on nachos but it was a great combination and I'd get them again. My... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 11:45, and the doors were locked. The website and sign on the door listed an 11:30 opening on Sunday. Rather than walking away, we called to check if there was a problem or if they would be opening later. It turned out that no one had bothered to unlock the front door. Bad first... More

Very good Q. I have had quite a few pounds of the chopped pork and it is really very good. Low fat, nice hickory smoked taste, a little pink. The sauces are very good - I like both the "original" spicy and the South Carolina mustard style. The ribs are excellent. Again, not fatty, nice and pink inside, required the... More

The food is average, but the layout is good. If I was in the area I would stop by but im from Fairfax so I would not be traveling here just for a beer or bbq.

Don't bother. I ordered rib and sausage dinner with greens and potato salad to go. I got the end of the rib slab with gristle and a small piece of sausage. The greens had so much vinegar cooked into them I had to rinse them with water...twice. The potatoes were way too al dente..all of this for $15...and a drive... More
