Top ratings got us in the door; poor service, salty/fatty/tasteless bbq made it a one time visit. Overpriced given the quality/quantity provided. Requested NO salt on fries. Order came back doused in season salt. Order receipt detail revealed waitress put in as "extra salt". No apologies when relayed when brought to her attention - just a "oh". Ribs were fatty... More

I can't say I am generally a BBQ Fan, but this place is awesome! I had the pulled chicken sandwich. The BBQ sauce is on the table for you to make an individual choice. The waitress, Taylor, was just great also. She was very attentive and added to the enjoyment of the meal. It was a great treat to find... More

Our favorite meat choice is the sliced brisket. It is lean, tender, succulent and delicious.Our server, MEGHAN, suggested trying it with the mustard sauce. It was the perfect taste accompanyment. MEGHAN not only knows which... More
