I ordered the combo platter as takeout. It was ready when I got there. Very cool place and large on tap list. Reasonably priced for the serving.

Ate here a year ago and liked it so decided to come back. Was a Saturday night and they were out of ribs. Ordered brisket and chopped pork. Neither tasted like they were smoked. Brisket was tough and had no smoke ring or smokey flavor. Have had a lot of brisket and usually melts in your mouth. Sides were excellent... More

I love BBQ and am no rookie on the smoker, and this place knocked my socks off! The burnt ends were the best I've ever had and the pork was perfect. The sides were great too! The restaurant served a good assortment of craft beers, obviously catering to adults, but had plenty to entertain the kids in the party. Highly... More

This is a great little place to visit. Unique menu and an apple caramel dessert that is so so good. They have an heated outside area that is open during warmer months. Worth the visit

Not much atmosphere, food lacked flavor. The wait staff messed up our order, but was quick to correct the mistakes. The pulled pork was moist and tender but lacked smoke. The chicken was dry that my wife had, half of my ribs were so over done I was unable to get my teeth through them. The sides were ok, the... More

Friendly, attentive, helpful service, reasonable prices. Brisket and chicken were tasty. Salads very good, which we may not be expecting from a barbecue joint. Good sides.

All the menu items are very good. Great beer selection. Sit indoors or out. Can be crowded and loud but full of energy and a fun place to eat.

I see that one reviewer did not like the food or the atmosphere here, but maybe they are not real lovers of barbecue, and certainly not accustomed to barbecue 'joints' in the South. The bar area is crowded and noisy, and the dining room is perhaps too small for the number of tables it contains, but everyone should get a... More

The Restaurant is in my neighborhood and I have tried it several times. I think the barbecue is way overrated compared to other Bbq places in the city. They had a new item on the menu that appealed to me and they were out of it. I may go back and try again at some future time but so far... More

I love this place. Great atmosphere for families and ample seating. I have been 3 times and thought each meal was delicious. I especially like the fired pickles. The brisket is delicious, too. They have a large beer selection and drink specials. I highly recommend this restaurant and the Plaza Midwood area, in general. A neat part of town..
