    Great find and close to Sky rooftop concerts. Food is great and you should sit outside.

    This place is great! We ordered the Full Ride which was a ton of food. The ribs were so tender they were falling off the bone. Brisket was tender and moist, as were the pulled pork and turkey. We also tried most of the sides which were also delish. The prices were the most reasonable in the city! If you haven't been, you're missing out. this will be our go to!

    Overall a satisfactory experience. Despite visiting at the dinner hour on a Tuesday night, the place was absolutely empty. The dining room was clean and the food came out very quickly. However, the food was just lukewarm and BBQ was a bit dry. The staff, with nothing to do, were mostly playing on their cell phones. It was a fairly good value. I would try them again if staying in or visiting the area again.

    It’s confusing whether you order from the counter or table. While one of us drinks in our party one does not getting a Diet Coke or any diet soda not an option whatsoever can bottle nor fountain. The three choices of barbecue sauce are all vinegar based to the point of vinegar and level of spice. There’s no sweet option just acidic and spicy. The sausage is infused with cheese and Jalapeño with no option for a plain link in the menu. The brisket was generously cut and served on the two meat platter at a most reasonable price. Beyond that there was no bread or garnish or sides that were worth writing home about. Overall this was not our favorite dining experience due to taste and beverage options.

    The food just wasn’t what I was hoping for. The pulled pork was chopped and kind of mushy. The potato salad had a lot of ingredients, yet had no taste. The fried okra was like eating straight salt. Loved the location and the staff was really nice. Won’t go back because of the food.

    It’s awesome. You don’t need a reservation. It’s outdoor seating with no host, so you seat yourself where ever there is space. Mostly community tables. Great bbq. Fun live music.
