“Great smokey flavor ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Our table ordered salmon (does not eat meat) and 2 people shared a rack of baby backs. Both very good. Ribs were really very good, lean, meaty, smoked until fell off bone. Hot in temperature and medium in flavor carafe of barbecue sauce came with. Sides very good especially cole slaw

Hi abaesq, thanks for the feedback! I'm really glad to read that you and your table got to try out a couple different options from our menu. It sounds like everything from the ribs to the salmon really hit the spot. Next time you all get the craving, I hope you'll be back for more!

Best,
Chef Mark

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We split the BBQ sampler with brisket, sausage, and ribs and everything was amazing. The meat fell off the ribs, the sausage had the perfect spice, and the brisket was as tender as I've tasted. Great spot, we'll be back.

Thanks for the review, Glewelling! Amazing is definitely a word I like to read when it's being used to describe your experience. It sounds like everything really hit the spot, and I know the team in the kitchen will be excited to learn that they left you with such a nice impression. Next time you get the craving, I hope you'll come back and see us!

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Large portions for decent price. Ribs were delicious and fall off the bone. They drown everything in way too much bbq sauce.Smokehouse burger which the servers highly recommended were too greasy for my teenage son to eat it. Nice ambience.
