Went here for lunch with some friends...and was pleasantly surprised! We ordered the dinners, which came with 2 sides and garlic bread. The beef brisket was delicious - but I LOVED the green beans! The sweet potatoes were good, too...the garlic bread was nothing to write home about, though! (Why garlic bread???) I had enough left to take home for dinner. There are additional bottled sauces on the table should you need more BBQ sauce. We all definitely plan to return!

I had the Beef/Pork Rib combo and the wifey had the beef brisket. They gave me plenty of each animal and both were nice and smokey, which more than made up for the fact that while good, the sauces didn't blow me away. The beans were the star of the sides but the Potatoe (Dan Quayle spelling) Salad and Slaw were also just fine. Being a Corn Bread connoisseur, l thought their 'muffin' was dry (grillin' it's killin' it). My wife liked her brisket but l thought it wasn't as smokey as the ribs were.

To: Brushfire - it's good but there's room for improvement - don't grill the CawnBrey - work on a smokey, Memphis style (HINT of mustard) sauce - joint is a little too loud for folks to talk. And you might wind up BBQing your competition!

We are partial to Sonny's BBQ out east, and Brushfire BBQ is pretty good.
Their portion sizes are a little SMALL for the price.
We like their many BBQ sauce choices. When they are busy it seems their
meat can get a little tough.
They also tend to get a little dirty and run out of TEA pretty fast. Finding it hard
to keep up with customer demand is their biggest problem.
MUSIC is TOO LOUD for a nice family get together!!!
The Food is good and the sauce is tasty..........worth going back for more.
