We didn't have a reservation and it was a Saturday night, but we only waited 20min before we were seated. The ribs and brisket were the highlight.

Unbelievable, melt in your mouth beef brisket, meaty ribs, the creamiest homemade style mac and cheese topped with very speedy and efficient service! And did I mention we had a reservation, were seated within 2 minutes of our reservation time and our food came out in about 10 minutes! Table of 5, everyone RAVED about their meal and oh yeah...

Very popular bbq joint in Phoenix area. Great food, good service. I would recommend making a reservation, otherwise you could end up waiting up to an hour and a half, especially on a weekend. Worth the wait, but make a reservation!

Robert, thanks a lot for the fantastic review -- I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! And a reservation is usually a good idea, but most folks won't have to wait quite an hour and a half except at our very busiest times. Still, it's always good advice, and I appreciate you writing this, like I said. Come... More

We picked this restaurant on a whim off of google maps, and we couldn't be happier. We had just left the airport and heading north, and starving. So we used google maps to find something close by. We went on a Wednesday night around 5pm. There was a 30 min wait, so we got a drink from the bar. The... More

I was a bit disappointed given the strong reviews. The brisket plate was good but not exceptional. I tried both the beans and the coleslaw as my sides. The beans were not flavorful and the coleslaw was okay. The atmosphere and service was very good. I would go back but I would not make an effort to go back.

Great food! Many delicious sides, especially the corn bread. A little pricey for dinner. Lunch is better price wise.

I've been here several times over the years. The BBQ is always good and the portions are generous. Even the cornpone is good! Sometimes the servers are less than fully attentive.
