My daughter and her husband got takeout for my husbands birthday from here. Hubby is a fan of ribs and said these were the best he’s had outside of the Caribbean. I agree. Side dishes were also good and I especially liked the cornbread.

Nice open dining room. Big tables and lots of room for larger groups. Great sparkling sangria and lots of beer options. Kids liked their burgers but my husband thought the fried chicken sandwich was soggy and potato salad bland. My pulled pork sandwich was just okay, a bit vinegary for my taste. It was supposed to come with Cole slaw but had the most meager few pieces of Cole slaw on top - really lame. Fries were excellent.

Disappointing on all counts. Never a good sign when you leave a BBQ restaurant and you're hungry for dinner. The brisket was tasty, but $12 for a 1/2 lbs, $4 for a handful of fries, marginal coleslaw - just really unacceptable. Add a staff that is seeking to turn-tables and push you out to seat the next people (even on a weekday evening). Just really nothing to recommend it.

Came here with a group of girlfriends on a Saturday night, hadn't been to the location since it was Tallulah/Eat Bar. We started with brisket nachos. I had turkey and mac & Cheese. I like that you get perfect portions, nothing like being too full on BBQ. Price wasn't bad either. Bourbon selection was great. I recommend it and will return.

A colleague and his wife took me here on a Friday night when I was working here for a few days. The meat is great and the way you can build your own platter was great. Good atmosphere and attentive service also helped make this an enjoyable night out. Best thing I ate though - the Brussels! Not often you say that!
