    Outrageously expensive for a BBQ joint. Beware making a reservation on open table...they will seat you outside.

    Absolutely awful customer experience. Arrived on time for our reservation. My daughter's appetizer arrived over an hour later - mine never arrived at all. Table next to us had a group of 10-12 completely finished while one 8-9 year old girl was still waiting for her hamburger to arrive. When her dad and I complained to the manager on duty there were service issues, she told us 'everybody showed up at the same time' - I guess the glaring problems were the customers' fault for being there. She offered us 10% off our meals but both of said no thank you. To cap it off, my server made a big point of telling me "we took the appetizer off your bill". The one they never served me. Thanks a lot, pal! Called to discuss all this with the manager/owner the next day. They took my number but he never called. Have since been told by Miami friends this was a not uncommon experience. All this, while charging $44 for 4 spare ribs. And the place was far from full. Be forewarned. They just don't care about their customers. And the food isn't worth putting up with the atrocious attitude.

    The best kosher meat restaurant in Miami. Friendly to all with a good and varied menu and prices. The staff could not be nicer.

    Service was unacceptable. Timing to get food as simple as a burger took way too long.
