Great Food, OK Service

My husband and I shared a slab of ribs and they were wonderful. The sauce was the best ever, but I love spicy BBQ sauce. It would have been perfect except our server was in no apparent hurry and made the evening drag out. We were very ready to go by the time she made it to us.

The restaurant was close to the hotel, and looked like a nice place to grab lunch, food was good, just not as good as some of the other BBQ I have had in the south!!!

The BBQ is tasty, and the ambiance is along the lines of an Applebees. On past visits, the music was too loud, but this time it was much more manageable. Wait staff was friendly.

Wonderful pork quesidillas. Filling and inexpensive. Typical bar b q joint- nothing fancy. This is an old brick factory. We ate a late lunch (at the bar, which we typically do). Great bartender and fast service. Nothing to complain about!

I wasn't sure what to expect -- I was hoping for a "dive" with really great food (you know the type!) -- but this was in a trendy part of downtown. The inside has a "distressed" (but not in a bad way), old fashioned look & feel to it. Our server was very kind and helpful. This is a place... More

Some of the best barbecue I have ever eaten. The pork was so tender you could eat it without much chewing.

The full slab of pork ribs was more than two of us could eat. Perhaps we should have cut back on the beans, slaw, and potato salad. Second thought--do not cut back. Sides were very good also. Great beer selection. A must if you are looking for a great meal.

I'm not the biggest BBQ fan. One would ask, then why go ! I was outnumbered in our group. I ordered ribs. They were fatty and just disgusting. I did enjoy the pulled pork though, until I came up with some type of bone or cartilage. I personally wouldn't bother with this place. If you like that stuff, more power... More

We love the food here. Some of the best barbecue around! It's usually hit or miss with the service, today was a miss. Two women and a baby, aren't usually what a server likes to see, and that is exactly how we were treated. My daughter and I had our food in front of us for 5 minutes without silverware,... More

Having experienced Texas style barbecue I was anxious to take my family there for lunch. The restaurant is located in a historic area with several adjacent eating locations. The atmosphere is upbeat with large panel TVs showing sports programming. The menu has lots of options and our party ordered wings and barbecue plates. The ribs were kind of "skinny" but... More
