    Too expensive. They also have a 3% surcharge on top of the already expensive prices. If the food was outstanding I would have no issues paying the prices and a surcharge. Unfortunately, the food really isn't that great. I can spend $75 elsewhere....

    Overall i liked the place but probably not enough to go out of my way. Waiter was good and food “ok” but not exactly what i was hoping for. On the loud side and seemed chaotic- like the top could blow at any moment. Probably would have enjoyed more if my salad did not take so long I finally changed it to a “to go” order.

    My 4 nieces and two of their daughters met in a central location. Bub City was the place. Loved the open windows and the fun location. It is surrounded by other fun places and a big open turf field that actually has a Zumba class going on while we ate. The kids ran around in it afterwards. The barbecue meats were fantastic. My niece & I were a little disappointed with the southwestern salad. It was fine, but didn’t have as much pizzazz as we were expecting from the description. It was mostly lettuce & not as much as the corn & beans etc. that we thought it might have. But she ate it. I recommend any of the bbque foods. The pulled pork and brisket sandwiches were very good. Our server was outstanding. It was a Monday night, so not super busy. We had a really nice time.

    Food was underwhelming compared to the menu. Breakfast tacos came with avocado chunks instead of the guac that the menu stated. Chips on the brisket nachos were extremely hard/crispy to the point I thought I would chip a tooth.

    We were disappointed with the food here. We got the wings and deluxe tator tots. Wings were small and the sauces were just okay. The tots were average, nothing to rave about. We always heard the location in the city was good, so we wanted to try this location. We likely won't visit again.

    The burgers were awesome. Very well cooked and the service was fast and efficient. We also had the fried pickles and Buffalo bites. Very good appetizers. The Old Fashioned was a little sweet but good. Overall would dine there again anytime. Had a nice Nashville vibe to the place.

    I will never be back. The server never checked on us, and there was hardly anyone there (my group was the only party there for half of the time). The room was horribly stuffy and humid. The server also couldn't speak to the menu and seemed very confused. Maybe it was his first day?

    Service was overall slow. Always waiting for server for something. Some items we fresh and hot others were cold ( should have been served hot). Just an average meal. Think they put more emphasis on the drinks over the food.

    Went here before a concert at Allstate. Super excited after visiting downtown location. It was incredibly touristy. Service was slow and prices were high for low quality food. Ordered two old fashioneds as they are a bourbon/whiskey bar and the first was incredibly sweet. Second one wasn’t even half full and also terrible. Super disappointed because this location was easier to get to than the city for us. Canceled reservations at sugar factory because we didn’t want a touristy spot to come here instead.
