Ribs were good. We also had friend catfish Po'boy and friend Shrimp Po'Boy that were ok. Beans were good.

End capping a strip mall, this small restaurant has some of the best BBQ and cajun style food I have ever had. Be warned that it gets packed with locals around peak hours and specials sell quickly. You can dine inside or out on the patio and tablecloths are not a thing, they use a large sheet of meat wrapping... More

Make it a point to get away from historic downtown Flagstaff long enough to feed your BBQ jones. This food is great!

Came here with my hubby and 6 year old. We got ribs, sweet potato fries, and gumbo. The rib meat fell off the bone, was very tender, tasty rub, and great sweet and spicy sauces. The fries were crispy and well done. The gumbo was authentic and spicy! There was a little too much rice, but otherwise very good. Great... More

From the time you walk in and smell the sweet aroma of bar-be-que until you leave with a smile this is the place! I had the brisket and it melted in your mouth. This place hits a home run, highly recommend. The cole slaw is kickin' too!

You know it's got to be good! You stand in line to place your order at the cashier counter. Think Gulf Coast Barbeque. We had the Jambalaya, Blackened Shrimp Po' Boy' Tater Tots and Slaw. All exceeded expectations. Bursting with flavors. Once you order, you take a seat, inside or outside. In minutes the server delivers your order. Within 2-3... More

Excellent Brisket! Fun atmosphere. Friendly staff. I stop by for lunch, reasonable wait time and I'm never disappointed.

Went here because of good reviews on trip advisor. Me and my girlfriend both experienced this joint as a fast food restaurant (with a 41 dollar bill for two quit expensive for fastfood). Although the meat was generally OK, the vegetables (in our case coleslaw) were tasteless and unfresh. A side remark: we are both Europeans and this style of... More

Rub had so much salt it was disgusting. Pickle on the side had less salt. Couldn't even eat all of the ribs without gagging.

A funky little joint, that cooks with love. Ribs, Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Jambalaya, Gumbo, Poboys and Veggie options just to name a few! A killer selection of local and regional craft brews. We understand it may not taste just like your Grandma's Gumbo or just like Pop's BBQ. But what we do understand is cook'n with love, just like Grandma and Pop's did. Good for your soul food!
