Employees friendly, food was hot and delicious. Had enough left over to take some back to my room with me. Would return again.

“Super BBQ: don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

From the time they opened the door for us until the time we were wished happy travels, the service was thoughtful and attentive. We had no idea what we wanted, but JB came up with great ideas, and we sampled a lot of highlights from the menu. The sauces provided a lot of variety; seemed like this was a crowd pleaser. Our excellent server seemed to have appropriate yet different suggestions for each table... We loved the Burnt Ends appetizer and the Devil's spit sauce. Our beer and cocktail were great, and it we just too bad we were too stuffed to fit any dessert in. We thought this was the best BBQ we have had: fall off the bone, moist, meaty and flavorful.

“Good burger, great staff!”

Sat in the bar as I was traveling alone, the service was great. ordered a burger and watched TV as the Black Hawks were playing. The food was out fast and the burger was steaming hot. Good job.

“Excellent BBQ - Consistent Quality & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Excellent food, always decent (or better) service, and a sit-down restaraunt atmosphere... Unlike the 'hickory' joint across the street...
FD's ribs are great, pulled pork is great, the spicey sausage is the bomb, and - hey - I think I like everything!
