I never did see a smoker on their premises. The brisket always tasted like it was cooked in the oven and not smoked like traditional BBQ. Really not like traditional BBQ in the Southern USA and not like it should be. It just wasn't great or the real thing.

Dishevelled female cashier sets new low for etiquette. Whilst placing my takeout order Saturday noon I was thinking out loud and was interrupted with a "What?" I replied to the girl that I was just trying to clarify the menu. "What!!" she repeats with emphasis. I stopped and informed the cashier that the word is "pardon." "Whatever." she said. "Well",...

A group of us wanted to try this restaurant because it was on "You Gotta Eat Here" the nine of us tried the pulled pork and fries and fried Mac & Cheese. The fries are the best I ever had and the pulled pork was good, but I found it wasn't overly favorable. I expected more sauce mixed into it,... More

If you are a fan of pulled pork, then this is the place to be. Have been here half a dozen times and will continue to return as their Pulled Pork Poutine is awesome. It is super tasty and will definitely fill you up.

Have had BBQ across the USA, I know BBQ. The Canadian version is different and positive. Poutaine is new to me and a new favorite! See Mia, she'll recommend the best items. The Pork Belly Sandwich is a favorite too....oh, and do not pass up the deep fried Mac-n-Cheese! Heavenly!!!!! Another must visit in Victoria!

The kids enjoyed the wings and my wife her chicken so I bumped it up to two stars. The barbecue ribs were horrible. They were like warm and more importantly they were tough to eat. At good bbq is tender with meat falling off the bone. For a so called BBQ joint to not slow cook their meat even close... More

Heard about this place from some friends but never went until I saw it on Food Network's "You Gotta Eat Here". I've been to a few places that were featured on TV and have found that a lot of them are either over hyped or maybe they get overconfident after all the business the show generates them. I ordered the... More

Here's the "Honest Scoop"- Decent pulled pork sandwich, nothing to write home about. Reasonable prices. Fast food atmosphere. Guy behind the counter was friendly enough. I would return.
