“Used to be good, then went downhill...”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Haven't been there for quite a while. The BBQ used to be very good, but the service has always been mediocre. Somewhere along the line, they started catering to the beer-drinking sports-watching crowd. My last few visits were punctuated by loud outbursts by the drunken crowd and the avoidance of staggering customers, both inside and outside. The BBQ now tastes fake, and on my last 3 visits, the check was padded with things I never ordered or received. If you are a beer-drinker and hellraiser, you'll probably love this place. If you are a grown-up and looking for a place to enjoy good BBQ, then keep looking.

“Terrible service and the food was just as bad!!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2011

First of all, the restaurant is ran by a bunch of high schoolers. From the cooks to waitstaff. Then I got my food, which was cold and tasteless. I asked to speak to the manager and she was way tooooo busy flirting and showing her body off that it took her 20 minutes to come speak to me. The worst management I have ever seen in New Mexico... WOW!!!

“If you value your time and money, do not eat here.”
Reviewed February 9, 2010

The service was almost non-existent. The barbecue was dry and the vegetables tasteless.
Then the management went to great lengths to defend a $.75 overcharge.

“Far from the best BBQ”
Reviewed December 8, 2009

This is not the best BBQ. The girls? Are they selling BBQ or girls?
When I want something good to eat I'd rather look somewhere else!
