The sandwiches we ordered were so tasty. Good service,in a fun atmosphere. The live music Saturday night was such an added bonus while we ate and sipped cocktails. Can't wait to go back to try this place again.

An easy walk from our downtown Buffalo hotel. A comfortable, casual barbecue place with very friendly and helpful staff. My husband and I shared a pick-3 combo meal for $21.50 and we still needed a box for what we couldn't eat. The food was delicious!
