The food here is good if you like real BBQ. The staff is hit or miss depending on your waiter, sometimes they are really on it and sometimes you will feel like they have forgotten you. The beer is great but not cheap. The best thing for sure is the half price sliders at happy hour during the week, that is totally worth the trip.

The wait alone is ridiculous. They have never been full when we go yet you typically have ajar hour wait no matter what. The tri tip is the best. Drinks are too pricey.

Had shredded onion to start and the portion is HUGE! It was really good. Ordered prime rib and got a slab of meat (15 oz) and cooked to my liking. Pinot noir recommended by server was also excellent. Great experience overall.

Music was too loud. Broccoli smelled like fish. No accommodations in making protein style burgers. No familiarity with gluten free wheat free or dairy free challenges. $18.00 with tax n tip for poor quality is frustrating. Lunch partners Mac n cheese tasted like it was out of a box.

We have small kids so we like take out. They have curbside service which is a plus. The takeout food can be hit or miss. We have had over cooked chicken serval times.
Eating in the restaurant is better. The Mac abd cheese is great. Good wings.
