We were down at the farmers market Sat. morning in Old Town Scottsdale. which in itself is a great destination. One of the booths handing out samples was Bootleggers. We enjoyed the samples & were directed to the restaurant just around the corner. Having had a late breakfast we ordered lighter entrees, pulled pork & turkey breast. Each entrée came with slaw and two hot Tortillas. The servings were substantial, ended up taking some of both meals back home. The slaw was excellent, the meat was very moist & tasty. The pork takes the smoke flavour better than the turkey, but both were very good. The service was prompt & friendly, although it was early & the crowd was just starting to arrive. Its location is just off the main tourist street which doesn't help the popularity.

Had half rack St. Louis ribs, came with sides of slaw & 2 piping hot tortillas. They also have a lot of other sides for extra $, but I figured the basic order would be plenty and it was. The ribs were excellent, with a subtle smokey flavor and fortunately not slathered in sauce, a hallmark of mediocrity in many bbq joints in my opinion. The slaw was great too, not too sweet or bland and tasteless, which are the extremes I often encounter in lesser joints. Fast, efficient & friendly staff and a nice interior ambiance.

A fun, casual place with good comfort food. I crave their PB&J wings and the bacon bacon board was delicious. Service is inconsistent though so I haven't returned.

Great BBQ restaurant in Old Town. Get the bacon board as an appetizer if you're with a group (It's a lot of bacon). Awesome drink menu with really interesting cocktails and a huge draft beef selection. Great atmosphere.
