This place seems to be all the rage but.....it really is just a mediocre BBQ place. The wait staff is plentiful but not very accessible. We sat for 15 minutes waiting for someone to just acknowledge we were there even though there were tons of wait staff coming in and out of the kitchen. We finally ordered and the food... More

Brisket and pulled pork are fantastic. Ribs, not so much. They leave the membrane on, which I find off-putting. Sides are small and expensive, but the baked beans are great, as well as good coleslaw. Fries used to be great, but I believe they went to a frozen style. The old carnival style, hand cut were great if cooked correctly.... More

Great little bar and restaurant. The ribs and Big Butt (pulled pork) are excellent. Their barbecue sauce is fantastic not your basic tangy sauce. Great onion rings and sweet potato fries.

Stopped here for pre-dinner beers and hors d'oeuvres and was glad part of our group showed up early to reserve a table. The place was packed! (It did happen to be right after one of the biggest college football games of the season, so that might have been why, but I get the feeling that it's pretty regularly busy.) I... More

This is always a good place to go when you need a filling meal. The pulled pork here is amazing! Other items on the menu are good as well. Never had a bad meal here. Service is consistently good. Craft beers are tasty and the wait staff knows what they are, which is always a plus!

We came in for a snack on a Sunday afternoon after a visit to the Root Candle Outlet. The pulled pork of the Big Butt Sandwich was smokey and moist, with a good bark. The BBQ sauce is sweeter than I prefer, but the meat hardly needs it! We also had 2 orders of hush puppies, some of the best... More

Love their smoked wings, large size and always delicious! Since the addition of the brewery, the beer selection is also great! Unfortunately we don't get their often enough.
