Had a reservation on Sunday. I am from out of town and found this place from reading reviews online. Came for the barbecue which was ok. It's like upscale if you call it. Regular barbecue on a square plate which is overpriced. I recommend the brisket. My mix sour drink was blah. If you don't like spicy food don't get the devil eggs or the mac n' cheese. They seated us upstairs in a little two seat table by the stage. Another two seat table was right next to us which made it uncomfortable like no privacy. Another couple got seated there after we got seated and ended up leaving not ordering anything. I didn't think they were comfortable also. I really wanted to love it but I don't think I will be returning next time I am in town.

The smoked trout was tasteless and the jalapeno tomato sauce that accompanied it was overpowering, as were in the olives in the quinoa. Best to stick with the brisket!
