Won't ever go back. We sat and waited for food for an hour and a half and finally gave up. The staff was friendly but didn't seem fazed by giving slow service. We could see the cook on her phone through the window. No wonder no food was coming out. There were 5 tables around us waiting for food. Thankfully... More

They were very busy with a line but we were seated in a reasonable time. I had a barbecue meals that was very good along with a cold beer. Even though they were blamed with a line outside we did not feel rushed.

We live in Roseburg and love to come here. The BBQ is great. I am a pulled pork junkie so that is what I usually get, my husband branches out a bit more and has loved everything else that he's tried. We are probably weird in that despite growing up in the PNW we love okra so we always get... More

We were able to get seated right away, but then had to wait over an hour as they forgot to put in our order. They did comp our meals, which was nice, but was disappointed by the staff. A kitchen manager would be a nice touch as the young staff seemed to be overwhelmed. The food and drinks were good... More

Living in Eugene we are always looking for a new place to go. Well, we've found our favorite place. I had the Pulled Pork/Hush Puppies/Black Beans & Rice, it was Heaven. The Pork was beautiful, it just melted in my mouth, and great BBQ sauce. My wife had BBQ Brisket with the same sides. Oh, I got to try some... More

This is the real deal: amazing Southern style BBQ with great sides served in a funky but convivial space crawling with hipsters. Prices are very reasonable and the service is quick. Full bar plus a lot of interesting beers. Opt for the outdoor seating or prepare to lip read, it's so loud. Also unless you are truly lucky and find... More

Visited here for the first time after reading reviews about how great the fried chicken is. Ordered the fried chicken with a side of Mac n cheese & fried okra. I was completely disappointed by the lack of flavor in the chickens breading. The Mac n Cheese was somewhat odd in flavor. The okra would've been better if they served... More

Very popular,casual, friendly, consistently good food, and plenty of it! I always go there when I'm in the mood for some BBQ. I share a bunch of sides and try some beer I haven't had before. I love the BBQ sauce there, sweet and tangy. If you get the pulled BBQ sandwich, it's about as big as a pancake, served... More

An amazing deal. Lots of food for a reasonable price. We sat outside which was nicely shaded. My wife ordered the chicken which took about 30 minutes, but we were advised of that when placing the order. I had a BBQ pork sandwich which was more than I could eat. Atmosphere is ok for a BBQ joint.
