Yep, all the reviews on here are accurate. It's the best BBQ I've ever eaten, and I lived in the South for a while. Seriously. Go. Go this minute. They have delicious, wood smoked meat and a lot of amazing BBQ sauce options. If you even think you might halfway like BBQ, you have to eat here.
Why 4 stars instead of 5? Only because *as an overall restaurant*, I don't think it's the #1 place in Wheaton. The atmosphere is simple, the service maybe average. The food is second-to-none in its category, but the overall dining experience is really basic (plasticware, paper plates, and sticky tables). It's a killer BBQ joint, which means it doesn't need to be fancy. But in atmosphere and service there's some room for growth with just a little more effort and investment.
