Such great BBQ. The burnt ends are so tender with dark crust - amazing. Also recommend the smoked salmon. Ribs were fall off the bone, good even without sauce. Great selection of sauces. Pit beans were a rich, smoky side I'd recommend.

1st time here. Expect a wait (be sure to sign in) on busy times. This was a bar now a restaurant with really good barbeque. Yum. I have been to the larger one in Champaign. I like this one...menu is the same. Enjoy which ever one you pick.

Very good BBQ, sides are also tasty.Very good service but go early as the line gets pretty long. Ribs are outstanding and pulled pork is very tasty.

Loved the food. Tried the Champaign location and it was excellent. Also the Urbana location before the new one was built.

Great food and very friendly services!! You have to go on down time unless you are up for a wait! But trust me, the food is really worth the wait
