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

Four of us ate here on Saturday 9/24 at about 5:30- place was busy, order line moved at a fair pace and food was delivered to table promptly. Food was hot and all four entrees (different) were thought to be excellent along with the seasoned tots. Staff pleasant, efficient and attentive. Food delicious. Will return next time in Flagstaff.

I would describe this as predominantly Cajun, but whatever you call it, the food was top notch. All kind of New Orleans type menu items with smoked meat (bbq) sandwiches added. Very casual. Friendly service. Don't be put off by the exterior. Order the counter and food is served at your table. Wish we didn't live so far away. I'd... More

My wife and I love barbecue, and based upon all the positive Trip Advisor reviews, we went for dinner. It was excellent! We both had the pulled pork sandwiches and two sides. The sandwich and sauce are great; as were the sides. The staff was extremely helpful, attentive and friendly.

BBQ Louisiana style and the sides make it. Pulled pork, ribs, even a veggie burger for the college kids. When was the last time you had tater tots, spiced up and fried, in a restaurant. Not fancy. Order when you walk in then find a table. Friendly, fun, and food. What more do you want?

I eat here for lunch quite often, its a quick great meal. They offer both to go and sit down options, they also offer a variety of rotating beer options great for a quick lunch or dinner.

A great place to get BBQ and a local craft beer....I was even able to order brisket by the pound, the sausage links were amazing, and the daily soup was highly underrated....This large family order took less than 30 minutes to put together and get home to the family....Will be coming back here again....

Thank Michael G

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!
