Had the pulled pork... Tasty with waffle fries that were crispy! They were out of the Burnt Ends... Darn!

“Best yankee bbq ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

We couldn't believe we were north of the mason Dixon line!!! Everything was really great. However the minute you sit down tell them you want the burnt ends! They run out so don't miss out they are fantastic!

“Excellent food selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Excellent food selection great wait staff & on Thursday pm's they have blues music playing. It's really like an old fashion-charming atmosphere. If you are lucky you can get a table by the window to people watch. Great food, great prices, great service.

“Best BBQ around for non-vegans of course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

There is nothing on the menu for vegetarians or vegans other than fries and fried pickles but before I stopped eating meat I thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ. I recently brought friends who are big BBQ lovers and they raved about it. The Fish Fry is great. They hand dip the fish and it's fresh. They'll make the jambalaya without sausage and shrimp but not sure if they use beef broth.

On occasion the chef will make a vegan chili that is AMAZING. I have my daughter bring it home to me every time it's made (she works there).

“Solid on Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

We go here every so often for ribs and bbq fixins. The food is always on the money and, if we go early, it is nice and quiet and they toddlers in our group are not a problem.

I love their chili, but have found that the quality depends on who makes it, which just shouldn't hold true for a restaurant. it should be a consistent recipe; but I do have to say that when it is good, it is REALLY good. The ribs and sides are always excellent. I love the pulled pork and brisket sandwich.

The desserts are also excellent, although I'm thinking they have a thousand calories each. Overall, a great place for all types and times of day or night.
