Interesting Menu

We did not try the Barbeque but it did look good-especially the Barbeque Nacho appetizer. The grilled tenderloin sandwich was good but not amazing.

What a great place. Pulled pork was outstanding and the brisket was pretty good too. Can't wait to go back for the ribs. Service was very friendly and we were taken care of very well. Would recommend for dinner as serving was too much for lunch. I had the pick two sampler.

I was in town on business and met up with an old friend while I was in town for dinner. This place was such a great find! The food was great and they had some locally brewed beer on tap.

Hubby and I stopped here on our way out of town after a weekend visit. From the reviews, I thought it was going to be a hole in the wall BBQ place.

I got the baby back ribs dry with the sauce on the side. It didn't have a lot of flavor and I would guess it had been cooked a couple of days before. With the sauce it was good, but average. Lisa our waitress helped to guide us to several good side selections. I got the sweet potato and the... More

Ate here while in Indy for a short visit. The brisket was good, but average sized portion. The beans were average, but the beer was cold. If you're driving by and looking to eat, a great place to stop, but wouldn't go out of my way to go again.

The baby back ribs were dry. The pulled pork was dry. They had only 2 sauces (sweet or hot). The sides were average. The service was average.

This is the best barbecue I have ever had. The pork is award winning. The baked beans and the sauce are worth the trip. Love the kind staff.

First impression could not have been more wrong. Food was excellent, and service was outstanding (thank you Beth!). I gave a 50% tip it was so extraordinary.
