“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Delighted to see that someone has already used the title I was planning for this review: this is exactly what Lurgan needs, good food, reasonably priced, great staff. Once we had nothing, then Restaurant 47 came along and proved that Lurgan people will pay to eat, but it's so good we were beginning to think it had scared the competition off.

This however is a very different offering and well worth trying, much more casual, and offering takeaway as well. We've been for lunch and enjoyed it, although the coke servings at 2/3 of a regular glass seemed a bit mean.

Tonight's dinner was great however, with succulent meat and great sauces: be sure to try the burnt ends and chicken wings which are superb. As it's a 'cue restaurant, it's running with sausages, chicken, pork, brisket and ribs only, but maybe when they get established we might specials for the weekend at least. Or maybe a bit of an oul steak, but for now, this is a great spot, worthy of support. Well done!

“just what lurgan needs”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

firstly thank you to trip advisor for adding the hog n hoof joint at my request :)
we decided to try here after seeing their facebook page and weren't disappointed. we all opted for the trays off the menu, i had the brisket while my son and partner had the pulled pork. i had sweet potato fries with mine ( give them a try they are delicious) we had a mixture of chips, cob corn and slaw, pickle and corn bread all lovely. the meat i had was delicious it was tender and fell apart. the boys pulled pork was as good as my brisket im informed. the only thing i dont enjoy is the corn bread we have had it before in similar restaurants and dont see the need for it. the selection of accompanying sauces are also good, a must try is the hot chilly 'shut up' sauce.
the staff are friendly and helpful we cant wait to try here again
