Went here for a late dinner for 2. Food was good and came out fast. Great drink selection and friendly staff. Inside and outside seating available.

Unexpectedly Good. From the parking across the street you get a preview of what will come as the faint BBQ smell drifts through the air. During the COVID-19, the service was a bit standoff-ish but to be expected The food on the otherhand was like...sitting in South Carolina or Tulsa Oklahoma knocking back some home made BBQ. We had the pulled pork with fries and condiments fit for a country king. Full of home grown flavour and succulent meat. Easy to recommend and certainly will drop by if I‘m in the area.More

A cozy place, food was good as well. Once full it can be a bit noisier. I would recommend to reserve a table. Reg food - just be careful ordering "medium" chicken wings - those are quite hot. Even my friend who loves spicy stuff...said that's hot - not medium 🙈. But after telling the waitress I got 3 plane wings for free. The other meat was very good, sauces as well. They have a nice variety of Drinks and Cocktails.More

Nice concept but unfortunately the service was so slow that we were forced to cancel our order and leave the restaurant without enjoying our meal. It took the staff more than 1 hour to serve us despite various requests to please speed up our order...as we had a movie reservation.More

A smoked meat lunch sounded a good idea on paper. I chose the all day breakfast. The sausage, pulled meat and the beans were the tastiest items on my plate. My egg was hard, my bacon was tough and the potato product was too bland...for my taste.More

I am always skeptical when I go to a restaurant outside the US that claims they can provide you with the real bar-b-que we are lucky to have in the US,. We were staying close and decided to give it a try. I will only...address the food situation as that is the only thing that is really important. My wife had the coffee/black pepper brisket with Mac and cheese. The brisket was to die for. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. The Mac and cheese was fine but not something to dwell on. I had a half of smoked chicken with a green salad. The chicken was cooked perfectly with the breast meat very juicy. If you are looking for some southern barbecue I recommend a stop at this place.9More

Service was terribly slow and we had to order drinks multiple times until served. Luckily the meat was juicy enough. Weird Rap music all evening long with terrible acoustics - impossible to have a conversation. Meat was smoked OK, not comparable with authentic southern BBQ...but good enough for Switzerland.More

We asked for pork belly, some sausages and ribs. All the meat was very tender and juicy, just fell of the bone. Thank god it didnt all taste of BBQ sauce like the americans loove and are complaing in reviews. Meat in Switzerland is expensive,...its not gonna be cheap anywhere. Lots of sauces to choose from, the best was the orange one. Delicious lemonade, great staff. Only thing i didnt like was the bread, crispy on the bottom but very hard on the top.More
