Noisy, poor service and food was subpar. There are many places you can get BBQ. This one the worst I've ever had. Will not return

Tried this for first time last night and loved it! We all tried different dishes and all were happy- even our vegetarian. Food was hot , sides were good. Loved the brisket. Waiter was excellent . Will go back for sure.

We tried this place looking for new BBQ places and took a chance based on other reviews, which leads us to think many of the other reviewers have NOT had great BBQ. This is NOT texas bbq (been there, done that), and not sure what...More
