Off the beaten path. If your not looking for it you won't find it. So, if you are in the area, go to the trouble of looking for it. IT IS WORTH IT. I am new to the area but have been to this place a dozen times in 2 months. There is a unique southern flare to everything on... More

Great friendly staff. The St. Louis Style Ribs are fantastic! Biker friendly but I didn't see a lot of bikes.

Stayed at the comfort inn next store. Heard some awesome but not too loud, live music and had to check it out. Fun outdoor seating to enjoy it. Great selection of beer and cider on tap! Plus 10% off your check if you order food and show your room key. Will definitely be back next time we visit our son... More

Best BBQ and comfort foods in the lake area. I loved the one on South Blvd in CLT, tried this one on a lazy Sunday afternoon in May and it did not disappoint. Look forward to taking family here in the future.

We ate outside with live music playing. The food was excellent. We had wings and ribs with mac n cheese. All of it was so good. Ashley was our waitress and she was fantastic. So attentive and funny with some sass. We are just passing thru or we would visit over and over.

Our server, Kendra, treated us like family. When asked her recommendations were spot on. This abundantly unpretentious BBQ, burger, wing & rib place was sneaky exceptional. Every entree, every side and even the complimentary hush puppies were exceptional. The cheddar grits were more like a soufflé. I ordered the 'small' sampler platter of ribs, brisket, pulled pork and 'pork wing.... More

Really good BBQ, the BBQ Cuban sandwich was delicious and they have an excellent beer selection! The fries and Mac and cheese were just ok, but overall a great choice for lunch or dinner!
