They were a little on the thin side but still tasted great! We ate in the bar and the server was also the... read more

Went here for my son's birthday dinner. Ordered the feast for 4. It was a lot of food and very good. The ribs weren't my favorite but they were still good. The place wasn't busy for an early Sunday night dinner so the service was good. Next time we would pass on the corn on the cob. It has been... More

Had the ribs and they were pretty good for a non-southern joint. Service was very good, atmosphere interesting. Fast service, reasonably priced.

Good Barbecue and good side dishes. I love the pulled pork and the ribs. Be prepared to get messy with the wonderful sauces -many to choose from

I had take out here and the order was hosed!!! Even though the error was corrected (after discovering it at home and driving back) the policy is to go over the order and the young lady at the counter was "too busy" for that. There was one other person in the take out area?!?!?!?

8 of us had lunch here, family style and for the cost we all had a real good meal. Chicken, ribs, brisket and enough to feed everyone with all the sides included. It was good.
