First visit and we were looking forward to it! Friday night, 6:30, no wait so off to a good start. Our waiter, Dave, was great - attentive without being overbearing. Our son (9) is a VERY picky eater and ordered a hamburger off the kids menu. Our daughter (12) ordered the pulled pork sandwich from the regular menu. Both earned... More

I wasn't really thinking BBQ in Worcester. Gave it a try and sure glad I did. Fun bar area with high tops or dining room in back - we chose the front. Friendly staff and good service. I'm not a fried pickles fan but these got very good marks by my mates. Wings were crispy and tasty. Brisket done very... More

Great every time we go. I got the brisket dinner and my husband the brisket stack sandwich. There is a choice of three sauces of which all are good. Good times!

We really enjoyed our visit. Enjoyed everything about this place, the decor, atmosphere, service, and food were all great. If you're in the mood for BBQ I don't think there is better anywhere around.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here on Saturday. The craft beer menu is extensive and the service was very good. We shared two appetizers - the crispy oysters and an appetizer platter that included chips, fried pickles,chicken wings and quesadilla. Everything was delicious. We sat on the bar side of the restaurant and it had a nice vibe. There are 5... More

Drinks are good. Outdoor bar area with live music made for a great Friday happy hour. Wings are good. Pulled pork was very mediocre. I have definitely had much better.
