“Surprising Elegance and Ambiance for Supper”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

When you are with 9 other Southerners in a California restaurant that offers Southern cooking, it may not seem like a level playing field. Indeed we did find a couple of small things that were not "just like home", but overall this restaurant was very good. What surprised us all was that this was not a typical BBQ place at all, but an elegant and comfortable environment where we could get very good Southern food.

The portions were more than ample and the food quality and variety were excellent. Our beef brisket was not quite as tender as the best we have had, but very good nonethless. Great fresh vegetables. Others had good pulled pork, salads and ribs. I didn't hear any big complaints about anything, including the cocktails. And our mud pie was probably the best we have had--not too heavy.

They were a little slow clearing dirty dishes--some cleared, some not for too long--and the server seemed to forget that one of his roles is to sell the full offering from the restaurant, including dessert (We had to ask to see menus.)

Overall this is a great place to dine in an upscale environment on food usually served in a more downscale location.

“Lunch”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

It's not a typical BBQ place....it is like a very nice restaurant with a good looking bar and patio.......the food was very tasty...I had the pulled pork plate which in my opinion was very well cooked, the BBQ sauce not to sweet! My girlfriend had the smoked chicken salad....also good but she had problem with the salad dressing....for her it was to spicy ....the service very fast and helpfully .....would be back if I would live in the are for sure!

“Excellent Southern Cooking”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Ordered the Blackened Catfish and greens with macaroni and cheese. Although I am not a big fan of collard greens, they were excellent as they were basted with a nice tomato sauce. The fish was cooked perfect. I'd definitely visit again.

The pecan pie was great with ice cream.

“Best BBQ Place around”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I have gone for lunch and dinner and was delighted with both! Their fried chicken is to die for and I am addicted to their Georgia Peach Martinis! The desserts (if you still have room for them by the end) are also incredible. Love the atmosphere, food and drinks!
