“Very disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

I really hate when I'm all set for some really good barbecue and then you take that bite, filled with expectations of something delicious, but get let down. We ordered a variety to try a wide range. We had ribs, chicken, pulled pork and smoked sausage. The ribs and chicken were extremely dry. The ribs didn't have that dark bark you expect from slow smoked barbecue. They were actually gray looking, small, and cut up and a piled mess. Not appetizing looking. The pulled pork was so drenched in the sauce, which was extremely salty, we couldn't eat it. The sausage wasn't even warm and was tough to cut through. The sides were very small (individual size) but pricey for what you get. When ordering meats by the pound (or rack), we expected to receive family size sides when we ordered.

Overall it was terrible. Not just a little bad, a lot bad. I don't know if it was just a one time bad day, but it was bad enough none of us want to try it again.
