“L.o.v.e.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Really good food (from a southern gal) at a decent price. I love the beet and cucumber salad. My husband loves the brisket!

I'm not sure I've ever had room for dessert...but I know the pie is divine. (sister restaurant with green russell)

I will return.

“Best Smoked Meat West of the Mississippi!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

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.

“Brisket that melts in your mouth”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

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....

Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

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.
