Wonderful atmosphere. A great staff and fabulous manager justin who made sure we had a table to our liking. Congenial atmosphere...wanted to try everything based in yelp reviews and of course our eyes were bigger than our stomachs...the highly touted long rib was really brisket...good but not what expected. The brussel sprouts were excellent. The sausage sampler could have been... More

What a treat. A wonderful selection of unique food including great meat and sausage. The spare ribs were fantastic as was the sausage sampler appetizer. Our group shared several of the side dishes including mac and cheese, corn bread, asparagus, etc. A real standout were the spicy brussel sprouts! I highly recommend this restaurant.

Great service, great ambience, and above all else great and interesting food. Who would've thought stuffed jalapeños with cream cheese and peanut butter could be so delicious?! A must try is the Texas beef hot link, best sausage I've ever encountered!

The spare ribs are to die for. They are known for them and I can see why. We also enjoyed the pork chops and the sausages. I loved my drink too. Juicy Basil; Basil​ Hayden’s 8 yr, triple sec, fresh orange juice, cranberry juice, simple syrup

The food was well worth the price. We had the Sausage Sampler and I had the Green Chorizo Sausage. Make sure to try the Cornbread. They also had a good selection of wines.

Not only was all the food wonderful, our waitress was so patient and simply great. Loved watching the chefs cook our food, and the smell was mouth watering, for sure.

Loved the Beer Garden in the back. Different (limited) menu than inside and more casual. But the food is prepared well, everything topnotch. Highly recommend.

I wasn't sure what to expect as my friend made a group of us a reservation here. Pleasantly surprised. We arrived early, so we headed back to the beer garden, which was super cool (as the weather was also super nice out). If you come here make sure to take note of the floor! Very cool. This is a great... More
