“Great little BBQ place - needs a couple things...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The folks at the Hilton said this was a great food spot for BBQ ... Yup ... Good food ...
Suggestions from an old south ... Home. BBQ guy...
Brisket comes in slices not shredded. Good beef ... Don't wimp out and shred the brisket.

Ribs- they don't "fall off the bone" steam, and smoke.. They bend in the middle

Collard greens... Make some new feiends

“Doubtful return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

I have been to numerous barbecue places lately throughout the mid-atlantic and south, and this one scores towards the bottom. Brisket was soaked in grease, catfish was soggy, and the creamed corn was undercooked. Not worth the money. They charged more for a kids juice then for adult sodas. It was a bar, not a restaurant. Waiter was extremely friendly and provided great service but that was not enough to redeem their so so food. Restaurant is located downtown so parking is not great and the neighborhood vagrants don't really add much to the scene. Definitely worried about the family's safety in downtown Harrisburg. There are several other barbeques in central Pennsylvania and I believe they will all top this establishment. I wanted to like this place but their food just didn't do it.

“Surpisingly good hot wings at this great downtown treasure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Wings that have been slow smoked then finished off by deep frying! Man are they awesome. I like the sweet BBQ sauce but 15 other sauce choices are available including traditional buffalo. Ribs are moist and tender. Texas style brisket is also great. Prices are very reasonable.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Especially love the Chili and the pulled pork sandwich. The sandwiches come by default with coleslaw on the sandwich and I would recommend ordering it on the side as it takes away from the flavor. You can order any one of their sauces. My favorite is the Mango Habanero.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I had the roast beef and it was excellent, although all the other food I saw looked good too! I'd come here again if I was in Harrisburg.
