Smoked wings have great flavor but hard to taste under the tons of black pepper used as the dry rub. Ribs covered in so much dry rub I ended up washing them before I could eat them. They were tough and dry. Slaw was tasteless and limp. Pulled pork and beans were ok. Barbecue sauce was maybe N Carolina style,... More

If you are looking for some good BBQ try the pulled rib. I have eaten here several times and have never been even close to being disappointed. A large craft beer selection, premium spirits and nice happy hour specials make for a great casual dining experience.

If you are looming for a fun casual atmosphere this is it. They have tv's, pool tables, darts, and fun western decor. It is very large inside. All four of us really enjoyed our meal. The smoked wings are great and have a unique flavor different from other wing houses. The majority of their menu is BBQ focused but they... More

We've taken family of 10 here and every single one of us enjoyed our meal shared appetizers! Recently, with our Sweet Georgia Brown tap, we enjoyed a briscut sandwich, which was on special. Looking forward the gathering of Patriot Nation here come football season!

I was told by coworkers to check this place out for the smoked wings, so we did. The entrance doesn't look like much, in strip mall with mirrored doors. They open to a huge place! We were there mid afternoon on a Saturday and easily found a table. The waiter asked if was our first time, it was, and he... More

I thought I would stop in for lunch and see what all the talk was about. I was seated promptly and greeted politely. I asked for an unsweet tea to get started. I knew what u wanted was a pulled pork sandwich and to try the coleslaw and baked beans. There were several choices for sauces so I asked for... More

My wife and I have gone with our neighbors here for dinner several times. The BBQ is delicious and they give you plenty of it! If there's a major sporting event on TV (Gator football, etc.) it will be pretty noisy but ordinarily it's a nice place to just relax and hang out. Be sure to keep a good rapport... More
