Always a good meal . They have a nice variety besides BBQ which I like. The food comes out hot and the service is quick.

I’m a recently retired Food & Beverage Exec who dines out frequently. We decided to visit for our first time and the entire experience from first impression , to all the staff, quality of food and beverages, service, merchandising appeal, ambiance, concept and cleanliness it was hitting consistently at a 5 star level. Paul the Owner should be very proud of his team as they hit it out of the park! Cant wait to return as there are a bunch of great menu items we want to try not to mention a excellent happy hour!

We keep loving this place more the more we visit. Jessica our server was awesome. The manager Sonya is delightful. Her attitude clearly rubs off on everyone there. Pedro the chef cooks some amazing food and enjoys modifying our dishes to meet our strict no gluten diets. Our new local favorite spot for dinner or brunch!

We were returning because of the grilled cheese brisket sandwiches and tomato soup. Not as good as before and it is the main reason we have always returned. Not as much meat. Our service was perfect, and we opted for outside...our mistake. Too many flies. We will return but will be looking for improvement. We recommend, but inside is very noisy and outside needs pest control.

Good food; tasty ribs and baked beans. Sweet potato fries nice and crispy. Great service from Allison, and hostess Sonya made us feel welcome and was there right away to move us inside when we felt the first few drops

The servers and staff were nice and attentive. However, it was the worst BBQ I’ve ever eaten. None of the food had much taste. Ribs were dry and crunchy. Prime rib was a great size portion but had no flavor at all. Corn bread was awful. Won’t go back although they were all very nice. Best option on the menu were the sweet potato fries.

Thermostat was at 78 on a 115+ degree day
Sticky table suggesting poor cleaning protocols
Tons of flies everywhere
Does not replace silverware after appetizer use
Very sticky table tops
No ice with water
Compressor was broken for a few beer selections
Mac and cheese was anything but. Was green and no indication of untraditional recipe on menu or upon ordering.

We had a great dinner Saturday night. The service was superb! Jessie was our server and couldn't have been more attentive. In addition, the manager stopped by at our table to say hello and to see that we were being taken care of. The food came out promptly, was nice and hot and very delicious!

We decided to come for Mother’s Day Brunch. Server was very good and attentive. Appetizer took a little while to get, but the Firecracker Shrimp was fantastic. The Green Chili Stew was excellent and so was Most of the meat on the Sampler Platter. However the ribs were extremely overdone and dry. We let the server know and they replaced only a portion of the ribs. That was a little disappointing, as I would think they would have replaced the entire portion.
The all you could drink Bloody Mary was great, as was the tap beer selection with local brews. A couple of people from management came over and apologized for the problem with the food.
We do plan on coming back because overall the visit and food was excellent!

We were seated inside, just inside the doorway, in a booth against the plate glass windows. Apparently all the flies that get in like to congregate there could do with some No Pest strips or bug zapper, because there were a lot of buzzing flies. Other than that, service was great, and the food and drinks as well.
