“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We loved the food! Literally everything we had was delicious from the polenta and mushrooms to the pork BBQ and the (huge) caveman sandwich. We were visiting with family and were not at all in a rush, but I have a feeing this is a place that likes to take their time. We left wishing we could take home some bottled sauce!

“Wasn't impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

After reading a lot of hype about this place in the paper I decided to give it a try. I am sorry to say that I found it to be average. Nothing special and it's very close to downtown so parking is a pain. I won't be going back there are other places that are much better.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

The ribs and sandwiches were fantastic. You won't leave hungry. This place is located within walking distance from must of the hotels/casinos in the downtown area of Reno.They were able to seat the large party we had and the food came out in a timely manner. They also have a bar which served great specialty drinks
