Overpriced everything. $9 for 3 tiny potato skins. Give me a break. Terrible, slow service on top of that. Took us over 30 minutes to get our drinks.

This was our second visit. The burnt ends were dry this time. Disappointed with that, the rest of the meal was good.

The server was very friendly and attentive. The food was pretty good, but not exceptional bbq. Cool setting. Good for friends. A bit too loud for a business conversation.

The place seems to be running on a shoe-string. Our server doubled as the host and was stretched very thin. The food was acceptable but not outstanding. Not the experience we were anticipating from prior reviews

Delicious barbecue in a different style to the standard Texas experience. The pork was phenomenal and the vinegar based sauce they use for it is amazing. Would totally recommend for a hidden gem in Oak Lawn

The experience aspect was good but the brisket was really dry and tough. First visit so I’ll give them a bit of a pass but I expected more.

I was a little worried to go dine out on opening weekend, but 18th and Vine nailed it! Our server Chris was beyond amazing! Service was impeccable and no one was sitting near each other. I will go back and obviously ask for Chris. He made our first time out again so amazing! I highly recommend him to anyone. He also remembers regulars that had not been there since togo only. So glad we went. Tip! Resos only!

Good cocktails. Appetizers were unusually small portions to share. Food was cold. Average 'Q at best. Service was indifferent.

The place was empty at 6:00pm. Must make their money at lunch.

The best parts of our experience were the valet and host. It was all downhill from there.

Food was shockingly mediocre. Brisket was room temp and dry. Not leathery dry, but definitely no meat juice.

Ribs were good but extremely salty. Same with the pulled pork. Good but extremely salty.

The sides were kinda sad. Texture of the Brussels sprouts was great. Tender and crispy at the same time. Lacked seasoning and were oddly cold. Not sure how they were still crispy..

Mashed potatoes were great.

Mac and cheese was sad. Tasted like cafeteria style with cheese baked on top.

No bread or rolls are served with the bbq, which seems odd to me.

Sauce is left on table and cold. I’d appreciate some hot bbq sauce served with the meal.

Apple pies were off putting. Burnt taste.

Service was friendly but inattentive.

The food was excellent once it came out. They were under-staffed during our visit; it took a long time for us to get served and it just seemed that they weren’t prepared for their guests. The “family-sized” portions were small, a couple of our sides were cold when they came out, and one of our sides was forgotten entirely. The cocktails were great, and the meat entrees were VERY good. I have a feeling that on a different night with more staffing, it could have been an awesome experience.

The Burnt End Appetizer was very good, however, everything after was fair to poor. We ordered a half pound of Brisket, and a half pound of pork. The brisket was 70% fat and tasted like roast beef.

It was Saturday night and we made reservations. We were visiting from Southern California having dinner with a family member who lives locally. The place was cute and I loved the decor. They were extremely short staffed. I believe the owner served us. He explained that he was short staffed and he would be doing the waiter, bar tender, manager position. He was gracious in taking off a couple items off our bill. It was one of the those situations where I felt like rolling up my sleeves to help him out in accommodating the other patrons. Our food was cold. My boyfriend had the brisket. He said it was cold and tough. My daughter had the brisket and pulled pork. She said it was tough and dry. She loved the Mac and cheese. I enjoyed my coleslaw. Would I try this place again? Yes I would. The night I visited was an off night. Things happened and I know the owner was working hard to accommodate all his customers.

Great smoky, Kansas-style bbq. We shared several sides and really enjoyed the brussel sprouts and macaroni and cheese. A great place to hit up if you're looking for a more elevated bbq spot.
