This place is always crowded but we'll worth the wait. If you are craving barbeque in the area this is the spot. Tender, juicy and AWESOME sauces. Great sausage and brat too. A must try!

Came here for the friend's birthday because why not, the food taste good here. The combos are a good value here, so it is worth it to get it. The brisket and the ribs are never bad. The area is a chill place to hang out and relieve some stress so I know I will be back.

Visited Seal Beach and decided to give this place a try. Absolutely loved the ham sandwich. Good selection of beers and moderately priced.

Had high hopes for this neat little place on Main Street. Took the family and had a short wait but excellent and courteous service from the hostess and waitress. Good selection of beer (I think 21 on tap). I got the brisket sandwich and just about every other bite was all fat. If a bbq joint can't do a good... More

Between the four of us we had the pulled pork, brisket and baby backs. Brisket was a little dry. Enjoyed the asparagus, baby backs and pulled pork. Nice assortment of sauces. Loud environment; definitely not the place to take someone with hearing aids. Dining room is small, very informal and don't be surprised if you wind up conversing with your... More

This is a funky little place with an eclectic BBQ menu. The main dinning room is a little stark and noisy and we took the seat next to the window; we were able to open the window and it became more pleasant. We went after the lunch rush and they were not too busy, so service was generally good. Everything... More

Decided to try based on good reviews, very disappointed. Pulled pork though tender had no flavor had to drowned in bbq sauce. My husband had the ribs, said they were good just a little dry, but the two sides were horrible, green beans so tough he couldn't eat them and potato salad had no flavor just bland and the corn...
