The food is amazing, the price is very reasonable, the portions are huge, the atmosphere is fun. I can't say enough about the smoked brisket and ribs. The best I have ever had. Great children's menu. *Check out all the funny pig's heads in the women washroom.

We just finished a really good lunch. The brisket chili was good, just different than what I'm used to. The pulled pork sandwich was truly delicious and my wife liked the Sourhwestern salad.

A really unique dining experience best enjoyed when you can eat outdoors as their patio area is fantastic. This spot offers so great BBQ mix, wonderful sides, a good drink list and a really relaxed fun atmosphere. Some nights there is even live music which is a real bonus. It's not "on the strip" in either downtown Whitefish or on... More

I am a big fan of BBQ, so if I were judging on food only on a national scale this would be low. But as I try to judge only based on the available offerings in the city/area and overall this gets 4 stars. Great location, cute little courtyard area. We went on a Thursday night and there was live... More

It has all the makings of a great BBQ place but the food was bad. The sauce was little more than ketchup. Service was good and the place had no shortage of customers. I think I'm just a southern BBQ snob.

My fallback for good BBQ. I usually do takeout but they have a cool indoor area and some picnic tables outside. Check out the menu for different sorts of items. The cole-slaw is different than anywhere else - I like it. They always seem to be busy. A couple of times they forgot part of my order so it would... More

I had the Grit sandwich was huge I only ordered a half still could not finish it. Looking for a... More

We were not pleased with: dry, dry brisket with saucing that appears to be an afterthought. The sauce was great, though. The hushpuppies were over cooked, too sweet and denser than rocks in the river. I thought the Cole slaw was sub par, others said just okay. The brews were fresh; that worked. Service slower than molasses in January, although... More
