One of the cool things about this place is that the meat is locally sourced. The butcher they get the meat from is just a few blocks away and they take almost daily delivery. The butcher then has sourced most of his meat within Ross county. How cool is that? The food is TO DIE FOR! I just can't stress... More

We took friends from Texas to see Tecumseh and decided to eat here before the play. We were seated immediately, since they were not that busy. We all ordered either ribs or brisket. The food was delicious. We got worried, however, when we were in the restaurant for 50 minutes before getting our food. We had allotted what we thought... More

Ate here before the Tecumseh outdoor drama. We did call ahead for reservations as we had 7 in our party. There are limited big tables. There is outside seating. The coconut onion rings & stuffed shrooms were tasty. I ordered the ribs baby back with the pulled pork. The ribs were meaty and moist. The pulled pork was a little... More

We arrived in Chillicothe and called for a 5:00 reservation. Glad we did. They had a lot of customers of all ages. The waiter was very nice, and complete. The menus was reasonable and included some different items. The barbacue sauce was very good, I bought a bottle. The waiter was very busy handling a huge crowd. If anything they... More

The restaurant sits at the corner of what appears to be "a strip" where loud cars, motorcycles and music from both fill the streets. We ordered the chips with cheese and bacon and that was very tasty. My wife ordered the buffalo burger and I ordered the pulled pork; my wife's burger was not done and the waitress promptly apologized... More

I've eaten here many times and always had a good barbecue meal. Wide selection of smoked meats and a nice assortment of sides. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Went here on a Saturday before we saw Tecumseh. Made reservation for 4:30 for that we would have enough time to eat. Empty seats then but by the time we left there were very few seats left. The food was very good. Tasted all sides excepted for the potato salad. My son who does not like Mac and Cheese thought... More

Wow - food is so good. We had brisket and its cooked just perfect. Their mac and cheese is nothing like I have ever tasted - several different kinds of cheese with crispy bread crumbles all packed into your own little baking dish. Their staff is very friendly and helpful. This is our second time back and there is really... More
