Stopped in for dinner and tried the ribs, pulled pork and the brisket. My buddy Dave had a burger which he really liked. The ribs were pretty tasty, the pulled pork a bit over done and I really did not care for the flavor of the brisket. Overall not a bad dinner, next time I would go with the ribs... More

The ribs were just delicious and the service was really good. It's a small place with a good atmosphere, great to have a beer or a cocktail (you should try one!). Perfect to relax and enjoy your time.

This is a little BBQ place in the heart of the Raonoke nightlife area. Great vibe and atmosphere. Has a small bar and a fair amount of seating. I am a bit picky about my bbq so I'm not entirely sure if it would be considered good or not. Had Memphis style pulled pork (never had it before) and baby... More

Stopped in here with my son for dinner. I went with the evening special fish and chips that I thought rather reasonably priced and although the fish was not what I was expecting (read pre-packaged and frozen) it was none less good and I was satisfied. The ribs were awesome, basted in apple butter and fall off the bone tender.... More

Cute little bar decked out it blues posters and instruments. Stopped in for lunch on Sunday before leaving Roanoke. We ordered: fried chicken club with a side of okra, Memphis pulled pork and side salad, Carolina pulled pork and okra, and a side of hush puppies (we ordered them as an appetizer). Everything was wonderful. The "side" of hush puppies... More

Cool and hip place in the cool part of downtown Roanoke. Very bluesy atmosphere with exposed brick etc. Service was very good and our server was helpful in guiding us to what's good or better on the menu. The side salads are big and the dinner portions are larger than normal. I had the brisket - very good. Fried Okra... More

Had lunch with another couple. Food was good, portion size ok. Have heard weekday lunch is great. Seating is a bit limited but if you like it cozy, then this is your place.
