“The Best BBQ in JAX!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

This by far is the best barbecue in Jacksonville! We were hoping for some place like this to come to town and it did and boy it is great! The place is non stop busy, get there on and off time if want to find a seat. It has the best brisket I have had since visiting Texas. Between our entire family we have tried most everything including all of the sides and no complaints from this family.

“Shut the front door!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

I love trip advisor! Restaurant looks like an expensive steak house from the street. Go in and it's a laid back BBQ place. Stand in line and tell them what you want and...Bam, you got your food. Find a seat and tear into the best BBQ around! I wish I lived in the city. I would eat here all the time. Great food!

“Very tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Love fast casual restaurants. This place was great. Got there just as they opened so didn't wait at all. I probably wouldn't be too keen on waiting a long time. I got pulled pork and hubby got chicken. The serving size on the chicken was very small but he liked it. The pulled pork was very good. I also liked the BBQ sauce. Would recommend and would go back.

“Best BBQ since I left Kansas City!”

Wonderful BBQ! The brisket sandwich is my favorite. Sides are fantastic. Try the sweet potato casserole. Macaroni and cheese is awesome. They have a sweetshop with yummy desserts.

“Best brisket in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

What an amazing place. Brisket is the best in town. I love the smoke jalapenos as well. Don't let the line scare you off. It moves quickly and is well worth the wait.
