“Great BBQ!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great little place off the beaten path. Brisket was excellent! Very similar to Texas BBQ, which is what I know. The sausage wasn't for me....just didn't resemble any kind of sausage that I'm used to eating. Overall, very cool place to check out in NOLA!

“The best ribs anywhere.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This place is off the beaten path of Bourbon street. But well worth the 10.00 cab ride to get there. Oh and go hungry

“Finger Licking Good....”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

If you are a visitor, take a cab. It is really, really off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. This is my second day this week having lunch at this restaurant. Love It, Love It, Love It. The pulled pork is so God awful good it's sinful. The ribs fall of the bone, goodness, goodness, and please, please have the pecan pie for dessert. This joint does it RIGHT, every time. It's small but good thing come in small packages. This is one of them.

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

What a gem! It is a very small place in a different part of town but very worth it! The ribs were perfect and the pulled pork was great too.
