I had the Brisket Melt and it was one of the most delicious sandwiches I ever had, everyone else in my party thought the food was out of this world, and huuuugeee portions. Their tap list is really great as well. Great place to stop.

Hotel receptionist recommended this place and we were glad she did, if you like bbq this is a little gem by the railroad tracks. Not fancy by any means but the food is the real deal. They offer combos of ribs, brisket, chicken...nice menu

Stopped in for the first time...it won’t be my last. Mac & cheese with caramelized onions and BBQ beef was my choice for comfort food. I loved the long tables where people randomly sit with strangers or friends to enjoy a tasty meal. Fun place....Great menu choices.More

Must stop! Hidden down in White River Junction this place puts out some amazing BBQ. There are 20 beers on tap, all of which are amazing. Hill Farmstead, Foam, Fiddlehead, Four Quarters, etc. The brisket sliders are amazing. They have a salad bar and you...seat yourself. You order at the counter and they bring the food out to your table. Visit the small beer shop attached for great cans an crowlers too!More

We stopped here for the first time and I was excited to get the burnt ends, which are like meat marshmallows. What I was served was two fairly large chunks of meat, one of which was so tough I could barely cut it. Chewing it...was a chore. I’m a big eater and can usually eat anything, but this was just gross. It came with cole slaw and that was pretty bland. Everything else was great-fries, kielbasa and mac and cheese.More

Thank you for you review. Sorry we fell Short on the Burnt Ends. That is a House Favorite. I did show this to our Cooks/Chefs and addressed. I do wish you stop by again soon. When you do, please email me first. Mention this too....More

Good, and fairly busy barbecue joint in downtown White River. I'm not enough of a barbecue fanatic to tell you exactly what style of Q this is--it's definitely not soaked in sweet sauce or in vinegar sauce. Pretty straightforward. Good selections of beers to go...with the Q.More

We(4adults, 2kids) had lunch here. We each ordered a different entree, and ordered appetizers for the table. Everything came out quickly and everything was really good. We tried the poutine, Buffalo wings, pulled pork, ribs, bbq chicken and brisket sliders. The kids had mini burgers...and Mac and cheese. No complaints. The place was really kid friendly with bins of toys. They had a good beer selection. Very casual. Will definitely go back when we are in the area.More

Good fast service even though it was Friday night and busy. Family like atmosphere with extensive menu. We ordered a BBQ chicken/pulled pork combo complete with coleslaw and corn bread. Alcohol available and prices are reasonable.
