“Wonderful Smoked Meats!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Newly opened as of mid-September the owners of this place know how to smoke an animal! One item to get here in particular is the beef rib, it is phenomenal. Pricey for BBQ but it is worth the $14. This is the only place I have seen outside of Texas (Black's BBQ) that does a full brontosaurus beef rib. Try it!

We have tried the pulled pork (great), and beef brisket too (fantastic) and they pass the true test of great BBQ, no sauce needed. Menu is limited but our waitress has told us it will be expanding as they settle in. Sides are really good but not exactly what you would expect when ordering beans, cole slaw, potato salad, mac n cheese etc. You can tell they don't "mail in" anything, there is effort put forth in each dish. This also means there is some variability, one time beans and mac n cheese were just "meh", next time both fantastic. The corn bread is yummy!

Nicely re-done interior with bar, TV, take-out counter, mix of booths and tables. They have good brews both on-tap (Shiner!) and in bottles. Waitstaff have been great.

Downsides: Pretty much everything they serve is at least a little bit spicy, individually this is not so bad, except that it builds up on you throughout the meal. If you are really spice averse, there will not be much for you. Personally I'd like at least one side that wasn't spicy as a foil to the spice in everything else, but hey, it's not my restaurant. Parking situation will be bad once word gets out, their lot is pretty small.

“Great barbeque in Leesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

A new restaurant has opened in the old Angeethi restaurant location next to the post office on Catoctin Circle. What a welcome addition to the Leesburg dining scene! We tried the 1/4 pound of pulled pork and the same quantity of brisket together with sides of beans and potato salad. Both the meats were delicious, juicy and very tender. The beans were excellent and the potato salad had quite a bite. Although the meats have so much flavor they do not necessarily need sauce we did try the tomato and the vinegar based sauces. Both gave an extra 'kick' to the flavor of the meats with a slight edge to the tomato based sauce. I believe that all of the meats are smoked on site which is a real plus.

The service was friendly and knowledgeable although we did have to ask for the cornd bread (which was great by the way) as it was not delivered with our order.

The prices are excellent. For all of the above plus a beer and an iced tea our bill came to less than $20.

All together a terrifc new restaurant and we will be back!
