Not sure what has happened now that new ownership has taken charge. The servers are less than attentive, the food is just okay, and the Friday night crowd has all but gone away. At one time, this was our normal Friday night spot to get half-price apps, sing karaoke, and enjoy a safe/relaxed environment with tables and tables full of... More

The food was good but is not exactly the same as before recent changes. The staff was friendly and the service was great! A good place to take family and friends in Topeka.

This place competes at food competitions . This means something around barbacue freaks. Most of my non Topeka friends rate it highly. I do also.

Just not the same since new ownership. Food tastes so much different and bland. Really want to see them succeed. Hard to get in and out at lunchtime. Service is slow.

Friendly BBQ joint stuck in the back of a strip mall. Split dining area with seating in the bar and a separate area if you don’t care for the bar noise. The menu had all the usual BBQ standards but, since it was lunchtime, I decided on the Cuban. This was a delicious twist on the usual Cuban sandwich, instead... More

Loved this place when the original owner had it. Meat was always tender and sauce was delish. Service was stellar. We've tried so hard to like it. Been back several times at different times of day/night but no dice. The food is still decent but not something I'm raving about. We'll still order takeout from time to time as the... More

The smoked ham was slices of deli meat. It tasted ok but it's not what I would call smoked ham in a BBQ joint. The pulled pork was alright but nothing I would go back for again. The potato salad was bland. The baked beans were actually good. Overall quite a disappointment when I was looking forward to some good... More

I will say from one meal to another you can't really judge how portions will be. I got the 2 meats meal. There was a very small portion of each. The fries were good, the coleslaw wasn't great. My son for the chicken strips platter which was huge. They were pretty good. My husband got the pulled pork sandwich which... More

Read lots of different reviews, was nervous if trying it out. Portions were small but the flavor a were soooo good. A pleasant surprise, we had the ribs and shared our meal. It was an early meal as we were traveling through on Memorial Day. Very glad we went, next visit will be for sandwiches & our server recommended the... More
