Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

The food was great, but our hostess attempted to seat 6 people around 2 round tables, which was awkward. We ended up in a booth that fit the 6 of us snugly. Being that we had a reservation, I was a little surprised that the table was not ready for us when we arrived. It felt very thrown together. Our server was nice, but wasn’t as attentive as we would have liked. I understand it was Father’s Day so it was kind of expected.

Very loud, so no intimate evenings will be found here. Food was great. Service was great. We'll be back!

Great service. Great sauces. Attractive dining room with great TVs. But. Terrible beer selection, terrible corn bread muffin, dry brisket and when the food arrived, everything was a different temperature. Piping hot beans, barely warm brisket, cold mashed potatoes. I was really looking forward to this but won’t be back. There are too many better options.
