The “plates” are metal and plastic. The food was excellent. The portions were smaller than expected but filling. Food came quickly. The atmosphere was nice. Bring chalk for the bathroom as you can leave messages. Parking was minimal.

Great BBQ. There is a great beer selection, and for a lighter, great meal get the smoked wings and fried green tomatoes.

We popped in on a Wednesday evening around 6:00 and it was already fairly busy and getting busier -- a popular place. It seemed very kid-friendly too. The food was quite good -- from smoked ribs and brisket to poutine to greens. A few other...More
