No matter what I order the food has always been great, the service is also good. You may have a wait to be seated but it is well worth the wait

We hit the place without reservations around 7pm on a weeknight. Wait was reasonable in the circumstances, about 20 minutes. Service, food, and prices were all fine. I judge BBQ places mostly on pork ribs, and theirs' met the test.

A little pricey for the portions. Pork ribs were good- sides just average. Cornbread great but sampler size portion. Sauce was good.

We did not have a reservation, but had no problem getting in a little after the main lunch rush. If you can do a late lunch / early dinner I think you would be fine. I checked the website, but did not see an email address... More

There are a lot of options which might be gluten-free, but you would have to ask to make sure.
