I have to say the restaurant did smell really good when you walked in. The service was above average but the food was just adequate. I can't say anything was wrong, but there was nothing that impressed me enough to make me want to go back.

Went with a group. Just enter the building and the smell of BBQ makes you hungry. Men had ribs and they looked awesome. Cobb salad was yummy with smoked turkey. Dessert was a cobbler to die for. Highly recommend for dinner or lunch

Good BBQ! Their rib are really great and the pulled pork is out of this world. Our group had five people so we ordered a platter which feeds four thinking we would also order dessert. We ended up so stuffed we didn't order dessert but did take home enough leftovers to feed one couple lunch the next day. The waitress... More

Excellent Food...lots of food. Great corn bread too. A bit loud but well worth it for the food. Pulled Pork & all the sides a must! Haven't had this good of BBQ since Sonny's in Port Orange, Florida.

This is by far, the best barbecue experience we've ever had as a family. The staff was nice and respectful. The food was fantastic with plenty of options for us and the kids. We all cleaned our plates and left satisfied. The prices were also pretty good. If we ever come back to Boise, we're definitely coming back here.

We were at this establishment on a weekday, and not many people were there. With that said service was great. The reason I give this place a three rating is the food was okay. Between the three of us no was raving about the meal. Do not get me wrong, this place was not horrible. I just have had better... More

My wife saw some good reviews and this was supposed to be good barbecue. I should have believed the warning signs (chain, in a mall, too fancy decor) when we first went in. The food wasn't terrible but wasn't anywhere near what I expected from the hype. I got a three meat plate and my wife got a two meat... More

We were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn close by. My husband had heard good reviews about this place so we gave it a try. Wonderful food, excellent service, and reasonable prices. This is not downtown Boise, so chain restaurants are pretty much the only choice, however, for a chain, I have to say "high quality".
