    Really great food for good prices. The service was really good…..just a bit slow since one guy was seating, serving, and making drinks (on a Saturday night…..someone didn’t show for their shift) He did amazing, though. Our order consisted of the brisket plate, brisket sandwich, and brisket chili cheese fries. The BBQ sauces were legit. Their tap beers were perfectly poured and served at at the right temps. We will definitely go back to try more items in their menu.

    The food was good drinks were good our only issue was we felt they were understaffed. There seem to only be 2 people working and although they were doing their best I have to give it a 3 for service

    The BBQ is delicious. We tried several items and loved them all: brisket cheese fries, loaded nachos, wings, pork ribs, brisket sandwich, pulled pork, all were great. The service was friendly and helpful, the cocktail list has something for everyone. We loved the TV’s since we’re sports fans. We’ll be back!
