One of the few places you can get dry rubbed ribs without any sauce on them. The sides with the meals are really good and fresh. The beer is cold. Service is good...even when the place is full.

Service is always good, food is delicious especially the skillet corn bread. They usually have some decent craft beer selections. We have always had an enjoyable evening.

Very busy spot, there was quite a wait but we decided to settle in for it. Well worth it as the ribs were on point and all of the other things we sampled were quite good. Service was prompt and attentive, none of the disappearing waiters that you tend to get on busy evenings. Good times were had by all!

Good nachos and cold beer. Ribs pretty good. Combo plates a good value as most times I take some home, hence 2 meals

This place is very busy, simply because it is good. The menu is large and varied, with a nice selection of beers. A very nice bar area, good service and good food.

It was late and we were pretty hungry! Our server was very friendly and recommended a couple of cocktails and appetizers which were great. We decided to go with build your own platters so we could try a few different menu options. Hubby had brisket and ribs while I opted for pulled chicken and pulled pork so I could try... More

we ordered the ribeye steak (2+ lb); it was delicious but we were overcharged by $15; the bill contained an item for "ribeye promo" and for a bag of doughnuts.

Thank davidwinstin
