“Funky, and fabulous food!”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

We always visit whilst on holiday here and this place never let's you down. It's a bit funky, not your normal restaraunt, but it's a nice funky. The place is nice n relaxed, staff are friendly and it's got a nice vibe! The food..... It's brilliant!! Big on pulled pork and it comes in many different dishes and it is so delicious! And special mention for the chocolate mud pie - the best I've ever tasted! We'll be back before we go home, and it'll definitely be on the list for when we come back! A great wee place, in a nice part of town away from the touristy stuff and well worth a try! If I stayed here it would defo be my "local". Well done guys!

“Hidden Local Gem”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

A converted house and off the beaten path even to locals, this place has a unique atmosphere and food. It reminds me of the Blue House Cafe in Norcross, GA except that it is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week. This is one of are go to restaurants we can always depend on. The Thai chili nachos with pulled pork is authentic and goes down really good. Though there are many menu options, their bbq pork could very well be some of the best in the Orlando area. If tourists start to find out about this place or people passing through between Atlanta-South Florida, could see several more of these pop up in other parts of the Southeast. They just opened a full bar area now.

“Amazing, creative BBQ off the beaten path in Orlando! ”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

You've never had pulled pork in these delicious combinations before! Lovely patio seating, wine bar, upstairs room that you can graffiti. Super cool little place with delicious food!

“Very relaxed place with amazing live music”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We'll hidden into suburban area this place is definitely worth a trip. Very simple and inexpensive food, very hip atmosphere with a live band playing outside (they do have amazing outdoor seating) makes you day a bit brighter. It's not that kind of a restaurant where you'd be offered a table and a three course serving, more a garden BBQ party where you can just grab a beer and seat wherever you like, enjoying warm evening and great music.

“Good food, not my style.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Went to this restaurant for Fathers Day with two of my children at their recommendation. This place is an old home renovated into a restaurant. They must hand out magic markers judging from the names scribbled all over the walls, ceilings, and tables and chairs as well as the floors. No one offered me a marker perhaps because I wouldnt have found a spot to write in.

The food is good. I had a Thin Elvis which is pulled roasted pork on a bed of lettuce. The sandwich is handed to you on a tray from a counter by the kitchen. The tray is covered with a piece of waxed paper and your food is on a paper plate with plastic utensils. Drinks are self serve as well and in plastic cups.

I am not a fan of this type of place and they seem to cropping up everywhere. I do hope its just a fad.
