“You've got to try it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Went to the Grub Hut for the first time, for dinner and loved it. My husband and son are the meat eaters in the family. They got the "Big Time" sampler for 2. They loved everything on it, but couldn't eat it all. Being a vegetarian, I got the Baja Flat with portabella mushrooms. It was fantastic! I couldn't eat all mine either, so we had a nice lunch the next day. Parking is on the street and the restaurant is small. We arrived at 5:30 and had plenty of room, but by 6pm the place was filled up. The servers were friendly, but not the most attentive. But then, they did get very busy. I can't wait to go back!

“Nothing Like it in the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Small joint in a small town. If you have any doubts about dining here, roll down your window and do a slow drive by. The aroma will pull you in. Some nights, parking may be difficult so arrive a little early. BYOB if you want. Menu is great. Prices are fair. Food is awesome. WARNING: You may leave here smelling a little smokey! Not in a bad way of course. Have dined here twice. I have been begged to take my friend back here.

“Friends reveiw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I actually have not been to this place, but I have a friend who goes there often and loves the people there, the food and the music. She has a wonderful time when she goes alone or with friends.

“Some Really Good. BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

My family has been going here since they first open. They even went through a slight name change since that time. The value and quality is excellent. While we have had most of the items on their menu, I enjoy their combo platters... The brisket and thin sliced turkey is amazing.
