SO SO GOOD! 5 different flavours/heat levels of BBQ sauce. Went here for some drinks and wings after losing money at the Casino. Made us completely forget about the money we lost! It smelled so good...I have to assume the pulled pork was amazing as well.

The food was plentyful and delicious, their sauce is on the side so you can spice your BBQ to your liking! The service was quick, friendly and helpful! Loved the fact that the draft beers were all Michigan beers!
