Try the Loaded Chips for an appetizer...finger licking good! My wife ordered the Fried Chicken dinner (30 min wait, well worth it!!!!). I ate the Pulled Pork over baked beans and coleslaw, fantastic! Located in Larimer Square, this was a perfect dinner to end our vacation.

The place is dark but the food is great.
We had pulled pork sandwich and brisket. Delicious! The waitress warned me about the fat in brisket..Who doesn't know about the fat in brisket? Really! That's what makes it good....

What a find in the wonderful Larimer area of the city. The areas is loaded with eateries and bar and this place is worth the trip,
Terrific smokehouse ribs and brisket along with msc n cheese and excellent chicken.
Try the black pepper biscuits.
Friendly bar and I enjoyed the downstairs location.

Our waiter was outstanding (Chris)! We ordered the combo, it was fantastic! We ordered desert as well. The Carmel Apple pie and the peach pie al la mode are outstanding! Great meal if you are ever making a trip down Larimer st in Denver.

Overall just so so. Then evening we here there, the time from ordering s beer to getting it to the table was between 10 to 20 minutes. Hard to understand why getting drinks can take that long. The food order once placed took even longer to come to our table. When we placed our order, we were informed they were out of baby back ribs, the half chicken and only had 3 baked potatoes left. Not sure how a restaurant that seemed to have good ratings runs out of food on a Saturday night. I feel sorry for the people lined up to get in when we left. The pulled pork was good but not great, the brisket that two of us ordered was disappointedly dry and required lots of sauce to get it down. No one at our table loved their entrees. Okay food with slow service. We will find another place the next time we are in Denver
