Really nice!!

This is an awesome restaurant for everyone. If you just need a quick dinner or want to come here with your family, I definitely recommend it. The service is also really great and the waiters are all very nice.

The best thing about this place is the wait staff - usually pretty cute girls dressed even cuter. The food is ok - I mean I like it but I'm a big barbecue fan. However, when compared to some other bbq joints around the area, this doesn't compare. The atmosphere is good, though, with lots of big screen tvs, typical... More

Great barbecue at reasonable prices. Very convenient to where we stayed at the Holton Brentwood Suites. Great atmosphere. Little place. But good eats.

I was told to check this place out when I was in Brentwood. I sat at the bar and had the brisket plate which was pretty good. Good price, great bartender, and good bbq. I will return next time I visit.

I just had a similar experience at the Fish House in Monterrey, Calif. This is home-style cooking, where locals mix with folks from out of town in a very friendly atmosphere. The place just has a vibe to it. We split the Sampler. More than enough for two. Love the brisket and cowboy beans!

I have been here twice and was not overly impressed on either outing. The brisket reminds me of Pot Roast (I like pot roast), but Brisket s/b smokey with a nice dark "bark" on the exterior. The fries were good.

Tried it once and not a do-again. Average food at best...onion rings right out of the freezer, brisket much better in Texas, the coleslaw however was amazing, unique, yummy flavor. I'm not certain I ordered the right things, the menu wasn't all just BBQ and they might be better at something else
