We had the 12 hour brisket sandwich and crispy chicken BLT. served on Colatina rolls - my favorite! This was my first trip, my boyfriends 2nd. He hadn't stopped talking about the 12 hour brisket since his first trip. Portions were huge and the chicken was a very light crisp, not a heavy sandwich. The fries were good but tasted... More

3 Guys specializes in mediocre, expensive bbq. Only clueless, price insensitive consumers with non-discriminating palates could possibly enjoy eating at this place (perhaps they are trying to appeal to the “14 year old boy who receives an enormous weekly allowance from his parents” market segment?). The basement setting is appropriate for this place. It's dark and sort of smells a... More

We visited here for lunch on a bright sunny day but perhaps that wasn't what this place was good for. The interior was mostly black and red, the floor was cement painted gray, and with the low ceiling and dark lighting made this basement feel like a dungeon. There were flat screen TVs on the walls showing golf and chalkboards... More

We had very good food and service here. A good surprise. It was a very cool place to spend some time on a very hot day. Really liked the small a** corn muffins.

My husband and I had a late lunch/early supper (4pm) today 6/29/14. I had a Po Boy Oyster sandwich and my husband had a brisket sandwich. We both had baked beans -very very nice . I normally do not get sea food inland but thought - give it a chance. It was the best PO' Boy I ever had- even... More

We went to this place because we heard the burnt ends were great. After seating, we think they forgot we were there, as we didn't get any attention for 10 or 15 minutes. If the place had been busy, that would have been easy to understand, but it was 5 and things hadn't picked up. We tried to order the... More

4 out of 5 Cardiologists recommend you skip this place, but to heck with them. Perfectly cooked and well sided BBQ dishes make this underworld winner a mandatory stop. Well worth the search.

The whole experience was great, the laid back atmosphere, the cold beer, the homemade sauces and melt-in-your-mouth BBQ! My 12 year old is not a BBQ fan so he had the grilled hotdog and pronounced it delicious as well! The waitstaff is very nice and attentive. It is great to finally have a good BBQ joint in Hanover!

Growing up in the South, and living in the North, is hard for a guy who loves barbecue. So often what you get is something that looks like barbecue, but is really shredded pork, with some weak sauce - that they always put freaking maple syrup in! - and lots of liquid smoke. That was not the case at 3... More

I really liked the vibe of this restaurant and bar. It had a nice, cozy, casual atmosphere. Great full bar and $3 margaritas! The food was great -- 2 thumbs up for the burnt ends. And also, the fried grits were dreamy. Everything here is apparently scratch made which is fantastic. Our server was super attentive, friendly, and helpful.
