$30 for two dinners and drinks with enough to take away for later. Would definitely return. Very small and cozy inside and outdoor seating for people watching. Nice little hidden gem.

No frills establishment, like the rest of Container Park. Makes a nice change from the high-end & high-priced alternatives on the Strip. Has the feel of authentic American BBQ. April's a quiet time, so we stopped at various places in the Park to sample the...More
