“Tasty Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Really neat little cafe - almost a diner - just a few tables inside. Ate there on a Thursday night. Wide selection of micro-brews - the Narraganset and Bourbon Beer were both delish. Our group had salads and brisket. The pulled pork salad and brisket salad were both good and plentiful. The brisket with two sides was pretty good. Brisket was tender if a tad dry. Nice mild sauce on the side. Very generous sides-broccoli casserole and mac-n-cheese topped with bacon. Great service with super staff-had to wait about 20 minutes but you can chill on the front porch.

“A great Lakeland stop for BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

You can create any number of custom sandwiches here, and the brisket and pork are very delicious. Great beer selection, and very accommodating for guests with children. I enjoyed lunch here very much.

“hits all the bases”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

good brisket, good burger, all around good food, good service, not too hip, just right, nice area.
location a little hard to find if you haven't been there before as it is one block off the main street.
