    The Brussel sprouts were the best thing. Service was not the best and it wasn’t busy. Might go back might not.

    While the restaurant was less than half filled, the service was poor. Getting our menu, order, drinks took a very long time. Our drinks were empty for a long time before we were able to flag down the waiter to order a second and third round. Not ideal, especially for the price.

    Great real BBQ place. Our food was great and service even better! It's not cheap but real food never is. Our server's name was Nia M and she gave us a first class experience. We had ribs, brisket, pulled pork, jalapeno sausages, and more. Everything was great.

    Trevor was our server. He did amazing job with checking up on us . Our party was of 6 people. Make sure you get 2 meats and 2 sides. I ordered the ribs and half chicken. Sides were coleslaw and potato salad. My lady ordered the Birria tacos. They have this Kansas sauce and hot habanero is the right amount of fire. I’m definitely coming back for burnt belly ends. I guess they run out fast.

    Excellent as always! They were out of my favorite thing there (brisket burnt ends) so I had to choose something new. I got the chopped brisket nachos. They were SO GOOD!!! We went before a concert, so it was pretty busy, but we were seated right away, had a really nice server, and he got us out in time to get to the concert on time. Everything was great!!

    They are always understaffed on Golden 1 Event nights and the wait for service / food is ridiculous. Not sure why they don’t check the Golden 1 calendar and plan appropriately. For anyone coming anywhere near Golden 1 with plans of getting food or drinks, always check for events. If you don’t have a reservation you will be out of luck.

    Was so excited to go to dinner before the concert! Meet family and enjoy the evening! Got reservations and they worked out great. Service and food was good but the noise level was terrible. I get it, fun busy night but the TVs volume was horrific. No need with that many people in there to have the volume so high, couldn’t even visit with family. Turn down the televisions and let guests visit!

    We got out appetizer after the meal - drinks ordered from the bar arrived after we got all of our food, and had to ask server about them. And to top it all off, we never got the cornbread we ordered with said meal. Never have had an issue, but this vist left my party puzzled.
