Always great food dine in or takeout. We generally do takeout when visiting family. During busy times I suggest checking to go orders while at the Restaurant to make sure the order is correct. We didn't check our latest to go order and one item was incorrect. Upon placing a call, a Manager got back to me very quickly, and... More

Our group of four shared a chopped salad and nachos appetizer and then proceeded to order the Family Stylin' BBQ. It is advertised as being for 4-6 and we wanted leftovers for my son to have for the next day or two. It was a lot! He was so happy to have leftovers. We had chicken, ribs, brisket, cornbread, and...

Great BBQ, very cool atmosphere. A little divey, but fantastic. The service was spot on and a pretty solid selection of beers.

Fabulous BBQ and a fun environment. Great place for a few drinks and good food. I probably would not bring toddlers or infants.

Stop here while traveling through town for business. The menu has plenty of choices and I chose the pulled pork sandwich. The sandwich was outstanding and I also had some of this spicy peel and eat shrimp. The shrimp were tremendous and you could tell they were very fresh. Prices are reasonable and the staff was outstanding. I will not... More

We ate here after everyone recommended it. Food was good and prices were decent. The area we sat in was very dark and made it hard to read the menu but after eating the food I don't think you could have made a bad choice with anything on the menu

We stopped to have lunch and yes it's as good as they say! Excellent ribs... per my boyfriend! I had the pulled pork with coleslaw sandwich, really good. The place was hopping but service was awesome and staff was very friendly. Tried the sweet potato pecan pie.... yummmmm!

This place is like no other! It may be known as a "biker bar", but you'll see people of all ages enjoying the amazing food. Dress up or dress down - you always feel at home. Did I mention that the food is amazing? It's usually where we go when we're in Syracuse - got to have my Dino BBQ... More
