I love BBQ and have lived in parts of the country where you can get really, really good smoked meat. I've tried the local BBQ options and they have been OK, but just nothing to get excited about. My first visit I had the Burnt Ends. They were roll-my-eyes-back good. Crisp but juicy. Intense, amazing smoky flavor and not overpowering.... More

A few family members recommended this BBQ joint. Great place to bring kids and play some miniature golf after lunch but the food was just ok. If you are looking for great BBQ, it's just not here. It's not bad, but the few things we got were just to fatty and the white bread which is traditional for southern BBQ... More

This is a small place, but it was a really pleasant surprise. BBQ isn't really difficult - or at least it shouldn't be. The trouble is, often the further you get from one of the traditional BBQ hubs in this country, the less exciting the BBQ. This can be a real problem for a BBQ nut like me who doesn't... More

Among the best fresh BBQ we've had anywhere is this country! Had the pulled pork sandwich (generous portion) and brisket sandwich. Glad they serve sauce on the side!

Went with my girlfriend of 2 years for our anniversary dinner. The service was really quick, we got seated outside and fed some ducks while waiting for our order. The Memphis ribs were DELICIOUS. We then had a few cold beers and kicked off a round of Mini-Golf in the back! Great night overall.

I really enjoyed my meal. I got the Brisket, collard greens and chilli. Others had different sides, the chips are good as are the sweet potato fries. They were out of the mac n cheese that night. The flavor is good, the sauce is served on the side, they could put it on the table in bottles and that would... More
