“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The venue was really nice and funky/eclectic inside. The concert we went to see was great and the acoustics/lights were awesome. The drinks are expensive but that is true at every concert venue. Also, the ATMs were not working, which was unfortunate but most likely out of the control of HOB.

Hi, I'm so glad you had a great time and that the bands were awesome. Our venue is definitely pretty neat, there's tons of folk art and history in every corner. My favorite is the God Wall (the giant blue wall that runs up all 3 stories of the venue with the head casts of famous artists). I'm sorry the ATM's were not working on your visit. We occasionally have issues and have to call for repairs. Hope to see you back soon!

“Lame venue.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a L-A-M-E venue in Dallas. They have a couple of different rooms to see shows in here and none are very good. The service is a bit under par and overall the ambiance feels contrived. I have seen several shows here, but my new general rule is I will only go see a band here if I haven't seen that band ever, ever, ever before. Otherwise I pass on this venue.

“Music, Food and Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Lunch here is very low key but dinner on the weekends is a whole other story. Food menu is casual and pretty good. Staff is friendly and helpful. Live music while you eat is different. The larger venue is great for concerts, both GA and seats on the balcony make you feel up close to the action.

Try the Sunday Brunch. The food was much better than I expected and the Gospel groups were fun, inspirational, and talented. Great Sunday experience.

“Excellent Ribs and various BBQ styles.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

The food is wonderful regardless of what style BBQ you like. Cold foods cold, hot foods hot, rolls to die for. If you like BBQ, this is one of the best places to go.
