Excellent BBQ and BBQ Sauces

We went here for a group lunch, so many items were ordered. The wings, the ribs, the pulled meat sandwiches were all excellent. So was the service. The place has many, many types of excellent BBQ sauce, so that all BBQ sauce tastes can be accomodated.

Had the BBQ Family Feast for 4 and had enough food for 8. Ribs, chicken, fried okra and sweet potato fries were spectacular. Server was attentive and friendly. Great environment for a family dinner!

This is our new favorite stopping place when in town for U. of Iowa sporting events as it is a not far of the university sports venues and close to Interstate 80. I would be hard-pressed to think of anything bad to say. All the entries we've tried have been very good and the prices were reasonable. (We especially like... More

I came here earlier this year, and at the end of the day, I felt like having ribs. This really hit the spot. The food was delicious, but only worth a stop if you are in Coralville. It has fine dining and a bar area, and nice atmosphere, delicious food. But my only qualm with it is that the city... More

For our family, this is a pleasant change from the average BBQ Joint. One gets the BBQ Chicken Nachos, its huge but he doesn't share because he loves it so much. One gets the ribs and says they compare to all the other places she gets ribs. One gets something different each time, enjoys it but has not yet found... More

Been to Coralville many times. Passed this one by many times. Not any more. Excellent choice for barbeque. The pulled pork and the ribs were excellent. Great smoked flavor. Sides of coleslaw and potato salad were fresh and tasty. They have several flavors of sauce for the meat. You'll find one to suit your taste. Server was very friendly, food... More
