After reading all the great reviews I figured we had to try it out. I wasn't all that impressed with the overall experience, which may have been because we got it to go. Six of us got the combo meals and the meat was good. Unfortunately the sides and the sauces were pretty skimpy. For each meat (ribs, brisket, etc.) which have no sauce on them, you received a small, thinking 1.5 once container, that is filled about half way. If your going to brag about your homemade sauce, give me enough to enjoy it was my feeling. We all ran out of sauce about halfway thru.
Taste wise, the food was good, though my ribs and chicken were alittle overdone. My wife loved the 1/2 ranch 1/2 bbq sauce. Brisket was very good. Will maybe try again but eating there instead of to go.
As to location, we stopped there on way back from baby beach. It is in the rough part of town a block or two from the "red district", though we had no issues.
