It's rare when a place lives up to the hype. I've heard great things about the food here and I was not disappointed. No one I've ever spoken to that's been here has ever said anything negative about this place. Good beer selection. Great food....More

The smoked wings and brisket are my favorites. My fiancé loves the bbq Mac and cheese and chicken quesadillas. You can’t go wrong here! The burgers are also great. We order GrubHub from here way more than I’d like to admit.

We just love this place. Great BBQ - they make an awesome brisket ruben. They make their own in house apple slaw. Good selection of craft beer and a reasonable craft cocktail selection. Get there early, the place fills up.

Super fun place to get your meat on. Everything is perfectly made this far and I love the bacon on a stick as a starter

This was our first visit to SUB - we thought the ambiance was great. Really made you feel like you were in a smokehouse and you could smell the food from the street. It had restaurant, bar and outside dining options. We ate at the...More
