“Very clean and still tasty!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

It is a pleasant surprise to find good BBq in a place where the tables aren't sticky? Our server was well informed about the food and served us in a friendly but very professional manner. The ambiance is like a high end sports bar. Free WiFi was an unexpected surprise!

“Fun Atmosphere- delicious food!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Casual and fun atmosphere with amazing BBQ. Go for the combo plate. Ribs were perfectly smoked and had great seasoning. The beef brisket was Texas standard. Servers were attentive and offered great suggestions. All for a great price!

“Was hungry for barbeque, but...”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

The first disappointment was right when entering. Even though the restaurant was only half filled with people, we were told that there was a 15 minute wait. Apparently, the restaurant was under-staffed. The server did not get around to us until we already perused the menu for a while and knew what we wanted to order. The flavored sparkling water I ordered was not available even though it was on the menu. So, I asked the server to just put the flavoring in club soda. While talking animatedly my drink spilled. We tried to find someone to help us clean it up. Our server came over and assisted but left it sopping wet. We had to again ask for napkins to dry it. An appetizer came out cold. It was returned. When it was brought back out, we were told it just came out of the fryer; however, it seemed lukewarm as though it was just microwaved. The food itself was not very warm either. It was good but not spectacular. I think our server tried very hard, but was met with challenges herself such as being understaffed.

“Good Chain”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I had the pulled Pork and was happy with the choice. I just sat at the bar for dinner. The staff was nice. The server I had was taking care of a lot of people, but still keep up with the demand. Good place for dinner.

“Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Nice Atmosphere & Service, But The Food Was A Little Lacking. The Kansas City & NC BBQ Sauces Are Not The Best, Have A Disturbing Bitter Taste For Both. The Buffalo/Garlic Dipping Sauce For The Appetizer Was Excellent Though !! Wasn't Much Impressed w/ Portions For The Money.
