We had the Memphis sampler platter, not on the menu but you can ask for it. You get pulled pork, brisket, sausage, choice of ribs, hot wings, and 2 sides in addition to corn muffins. Plenty of food for 3 people. I have found the St Louis ribs to be more tender than the baby back ribs. When on (75% of the time) the brisket is the best in Cincy. The collard greend are the best in Cincy hands down. Eat here, you will not regret it.

The food was ok but was not worth the exorbitant prices they were charging. A 4 dollar side dish barely got a mouthful. After 40 dollars for 2 people you would think we were stuffed but that was not the case.

The fried green tomatoes were good tho. The other stuff was dried out and over cooked, so we won't return. A bit pricey too - $48 for 2 ppl - just the dinners, no drinks or desert.

This is the second time we've had a great meal and service at this restaurant. Our server was very friendly and made sure we had everything. My husband had the rib combo, the ribs were juicy and tender. I had the chicken and waffles, the waffle was a sweet potato waffle served with cinnamon butter & a side of syrup with a fried boneless breast definitely an entree for a person with a sweet tooth. You get corn muffins with your entree and they aren't like typical ones, they're very soft and more like a cake texture. In the 2 times we've been there everything has been tasty and well served.

It is always better than the last time. Very short wait time . The cat fish was unbelievable and I don't care for fresh water fish. On Friday they have all you can eat for $19.99 . My wife had a premium pork chop that was on the bone. Great taste treat. You can order 1 or 2 chops. The selection of sides are large . This is becoming one of our best spots!
