If I walked in here without seeing the name, I would not have figured this a BBQ joint. I would call it a burger joint with Bbq flare.

Disappointed with the service and the food. Service was very slow and not friendly at all. Our appetizers came out and then two minutes later our meals showed up. We won't be back

Not the fastest service time in the world - but the grilled salmon was done just right and was nice and hot. Worth the wait and will return for the other delicious looking BBQ options!
