We visited here last weekend while in town and the food was excellent. Awesome. Over the top. Never tried before, seen a few in the past. The selection of bbq sauces was very delicious. We will definitely start eating here when we see one.

This place was great. Tina our server was fabulous and helped us figure out what to order. We had just come from Kansas City and this BBQ was way better. The sides were good portions, and the location is good. If you are in the area...STOP AND EAT HERE.

Grandson had chicken fingers. The one thing I was not pleased with is they had a new thing on your table that you... More

I like it better than Red Robin but probably bc of the more adult atmosphere. The food is about the same caliber but has an alright bar. Similar to O'Charley's.

Everything is good. I have tried pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken. I like mashed potatoes, baked beans, corn. Try the Angry Orchard Cider with caramel and sugared rim. I would like to see more variety in sauces.

Thank JAEsMommy
