Growing up in North Carolina, my standard for barbecue is pretty high. Unfortunately, this just doesn't meet the bar. Flavorless meat but the sauces are good.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate the business. I’m sorry you were disappointed. We try our best and to receive a 1 star review from you is pretty harsh. That means the food was inedible. It’s sounds like you guys cleaned your plates. Platters...More

You can check with the restaurant in advance. I doubt that fennel is used but cinnamon is used in some of the desserts.

No. I do offer a vinegar and mustard sauce, but 99% of what I serve is a tomato based sauce with a good amount of vinegar. We serve our bbq wet. Thanks Joseph
