Great sides - light on the meat

The food was wonderful. everything tasted great. I was shocked at the proportion of the sides (LARGE) to the meat (Medium to small). Maybe this is a South Carolina thing?

I have to say this is the best BBQ in Greenville. Flavorful, delicious and never a disappointment. You also have to try the potato skins, the squash casserole and the bourbon pecan pie. Keep up the good work. We will be back real soon. Oh, I almost forgot. Prime Rib is a great value, delicious and is limited quantity. Get... More

The food is great here. It's not just a BBQ place. Fun atmosphere! They have great sides and appetizers too. Just a fun place for a night out.

Since it is a bbq place, that is what I will address first. It was just okay. The ribs were very good, but the brisket and chicken were dry. The sauces are good, but should be used as an accessory, here the dryness makes them a necessity. We had an appetizer that was quite good, their unique version of nachos,... More

Had a little wait to get a table but everyone else in line said it would be worth the wait. And they were right! Ordered ribs and brisket - brisket was a little on the thin side but delicious flavor. Ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender and savory with just the right amount of dry rub flavor. Abundant supply of four different... More

We wandered down on the recommendation of a local fairly late on a Thursday evening. I was worried they might be closing, but not to worry- there was still a wait for a table! The cocktail waitress came over to where we were waiting quickly and got us a drink, so all was fine with the rather brief wait- about... More

The floor is so greasy I could not keep my feet. When I reported it to the manager he said, "It is grease dragged out from the kitchen." I said, "I know, you should clean it up". He said, "It is too much work and would require an industrial degreaser." I said, "Yes it will; when you shut down at... More

If you call ahead your wait time will be cut in half and the wait time for dinner on the weekends is like 2 hours! Live music outside which helps the wait especially if the weather is nice. Nice outdoor seating with views of the shopping districts of Greeneville. Amazing food, huge portions- all utterly fantastic! Our service was fantastic!
