Came here for lunch and had the Smoked Combo - includes a piece of brisket, 3 ribs, and a half serving of pulled pork (full serving being what would come on their sandwich). The ribs were good and the pulled pork was pretty good, if lacking a bit of flavor. The brisket was pretty dry and overcooked. The side of "bacon sprouts" (bacon and brussel sprouts) were ok, but a bit soggy and overcooked.

The staff were all great. The guy (who I assume was the manager) greeted me and asked about my party - I came a bit later and when I took a second to tell him the name on the reservation he guessed it and left me right to my table. The server was also very good - making sure my drink was always topped off and offered good insight on several of the dishes (although, I disagree with us assessment of the brisket being juicy).

Overall it was a decent experience but the food wasn't very good. I may try this place again at some point in the future to see if the food has gotten any better, or maybe try something else on the menu.

Apple smoked ribs were delicious, although my friend who had the fried chicken did not like them. Good place to eat and visit.

Best Barbecue in DC Area. Beautiful layout with delicious food and great customer service. Great for lunch or dinner, family or romantic. I would and do recommend this place to everyone.

We dined early in the evening New Year's Eve. Everything was consistent from our previous experiences with this restaurant. Definitely recommend. Service was awesome.

Our credit card statement did not reflect the same amount as our receipt. While it was only a small discrepancy of less than $10 this is still immoral and illegal. Unfortunately our experience was overall poor regardless of this issue. The service and food were both lackluster. I can often overlook food with good service but the service was inexcusable.

My friend and I had brunch. It was awesome. Ribeye, shrimp & grits and bottomless mimosas. Their cornbread muffins with blueberries are to die for!

A bit overpriced for the portion. No smoke ring on the meat for a bbq place. Ribs were not fall off the bone tender.
