We visited here after the Civil Rights Museum and the food was fantastic. We looked online for reviews and knew we had to try it whilst in town. It was quite busy inside but definitely worth waiting and getting a table. The BBQ sauce was super tasty and the pulled pork was great. We also tried the mac n' cheese which was delicious. Highly recommend if you're in town! We'll be visiting again for sure.

very good meat and atmosphere at reasonable price, only thing is location. Restaurant is safe with security guards and etc, but location is somewhat shady

While the meats were great, we had the pulled prork and smoked turkey breast, the tastiest dish was the mac n cheese. Some of the best mac and cheese I've ever had, noddles were cooked perfectly and the seasoning was spot on. Staff is quick and friendly, restaurant is very clean, and there's plenty of space inside and outside. The bonus is that it's right next to the civil rights museum, so after a hearty lunch, you an walk it off all while actually learning something.

Went here after visiting the Civil Rights Museum on a friend's recommendation. Well worth it. We had chicken wings to share which were very good. Mains were ribs, chicken and a pulled pork sandwich. All very tasty and hot. Good selection of beers. Very busy but the service is good. When we left people were queuing out of the door. Always a good sign.
