    First, the food is fantastic, the ambiance is great and I love the restaurant. We had a problem this last time.... This was our 3rd visit in a week...obviously we like it....but...I had requested a table....there was 6 of us....we were seated at a booth and I reminded the gentleman that I had requested a table when making the reservation. He basically ignored me and walked away. I went back up to the hostess desk and informed them of the same request. They were overwhelmed and by the time they could even get around to paying attention, the waitress had brought drinks and complimentary garlic bread. They finally were able to move us and instead of helping us, she told us to get our stuff and let's go. It was irritating. I will still go back, but I will put my requests in bold from now on and remind the staff of my requests when I walk into the restaurant.

    3 people didn’t get their food Sides came out after 20 mins of the meal The bill was wrong We got plastic silverware and paper napkins that we waited 15 mins for and the table next to us had linen and silverware We never got drinks we ordered Charged wrong for our bill. Waiting for the bank statement to assure it was fixed. Worst service like you would see in a funny movie.

    Our server, Angie, was great! Helpful with menu suggestions as we were first timers. Happy Hour drinks were yummy and a great deal. The food was great, as we were hoping and expecting! If anything, the tacos were TOO big! Angie also gave us a hot link on the house, yay! We’ll definitely go back!

    Sam my family and I will definitely be back cracked by smoke and fire our waitress Maria was phenomenal. She even took the time to recommend appetizers and courteous give us samples of things since it was our first time. Do yourself a favor and get something with Brisket in it. It is so flavorful smoky and tender. I got the grilled cheese and my husband got the tacos🔥 the portions were so substantial we were able to box up a part of our lunch and still had a heady dinner. An amazing experience from beginning to end (which by the way was all of an hour because the service was so fast and efficient) Adding this place to my list of favorites!!

    I ordered the Birra tacos and they were a bit salty, so I asked for lemon… some spicy chile would have been great too as an option. I ordered a drink and it was a bit too strong for my tasting. I also ordered a side of corn with easy cream to which I got no cream. Server was great and very welcoming. We did get a free dessert.

    I don't think we'll be back. We think the server forgot to put in our appetizer order. We got the wrong sides delivered. The brisket for the brisket plate is SO small, but they serve it on a large tray that you typically see at bbq restaurants so it makes it look even SMALLER. The quality was not there for the prices they charge. My grilled cheese was more burned than gooey and it was tough to get through. The air was blasting but not really diffused so our food got cold while waiting for the correct sides. The server checked on us multiple times but seemed to be unaware that we still had the same drinks and no food in front of us (i.e. nothing had changed), so it seemed like they were just going through the motions and we didn't really feel looked after.

    We waited over an hour and never received our food. The wait staff must have forgotten to put our order into the kitchen. We got up and left never having received our meal. Such poor organization & management

    What a great place! First time here and will NOT be the last time. Firstly they have an amazing Happy Hour! Buy one get one (Juan) free! Ummm, hello, YES! Great drinks!! Bernadette took care of us and she was THE best! She gave us great recommendations and was spot on! Ok so the food -- our favorites were the grits and brisket, the fries and smash burger were yummy (get a double smash), and the brisket potato salad. I had a salad with turkey and it was great. Bottom line - we will be back!!

    Overall it was a great experience, although we were a little disappointed with the Bavarian pretzel which we had had a few weeks earlier. And the first time we had it it was soft and hot and fresh out of the oven and delicious. This last time when we went specifically because we wanted to share the Bavarian pretzel with our friends and it was hot out of the oven but it was over baked so it’s was a little hard to break and eat so disappointing.

    I came here to celebrate Father’s Day with my Husband and kids the ambiance is very casual and noisy but the food is great our favorite would be the brisket! I would give it a 5 if they followed my request to be seated outside since I made a reservation I thought they would at least pull thru the request! The food took a little bit longer too the main dish came before the appetizer but overall it’s good so I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5!

    Food was very flavorful! I ordered the short rib birria tacos and my husband ordered the brisket tacos, both were delish! And service was fantastic. The general manager came out to our table and really made sure the experience we had at the restaurant was top notch. Will definitely eat here again!

    Father's Day celebration. They were slammed, but remained courteous and attentive. They gave all the Dad's free shots, and gave us free mac n cheese because our food took a while. Jenna was our server, and she was a sweetheart. Definitely going back.

    Was shocked on how great the food and experience was. Great staff and amazing food. They even got my grit hating mother to give the grits a shot and she LOVED them. Drinks were also great! Ashley was the server, she was so great. The GM Ben was so involved and knowledgeable about everything. Couldn’t recommend this place more.

    The place took over the late Wood Raunch restaurant. I didn’t like what they did with the internal changes but I’m not there for what side paneling they used or paint color. I was there for bbq. At arrival the hostess was struggling and had some type of challenge. She couldn’t find my OpenTable reservation. Ask me to show her my confirmation email, which I did. She still could not find it and at this point I felt as if I was being accused of lying and merely trying to con our way in for a table. Her body language and tone said it all. We felt very uncomfortable. Hmm what a great start so far. We finally got seated. I hope the food and wait service can shine at this point. At this night looks like they were under staff. Waitstaff was all over the place. Why did management allow our waiter to wait on us and another table on the other side of the restaurant? Anyone that been to this restaurant or the former establishment will know it’s not a small place. Our waiter was hustling and doing his best and we appreciate that. Any delays etc was not his fault but a reflection of management. The food was ok for our taste with some dishes better then others. We will probably not be coming here any time soon as there are better choices.
