“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

Heard this joint had great BBQ.
Menu was limited, really just chicken and pulled pork. Chicken nachos had great flavor but pulled pork was average at best. Weak wait staff and terrible drinks. Fun place to hang out though. Good band. Better good across the street at Jacks.

“First timer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Checked out the barbecue joint downtown based on a local's recommendation. The baroque was delicious and the best we have had in Nashville. The pulled pork sandwich had a great smokey barbecue taste and the ribs were tender and fell off the bone. The barbecue sauces were definitely the cherry on top and this restaurant proved to live up to it's good reputation. The live music was a great complement to the great food. Would definitely recommend and visit again!

“First time visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Hit this place to grab dinner while walking Broadway. Sat upstairs to listen to the band while I ate. The full rack of ribs were excellent. This place got really busy and the service suffered but overall good quality food in a fun place.

“Great meal and lots of it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Just had lunch, the pulled chicken on a house salad and it was delicious! Chicken was hot, lots of it and great simple salad. Live music on both floors made it a fun atmosphere. Would definitely recommend it and we will return too!
