    Everything was good except how cold it was in the restaurant; it was freezing outside and each time the door opened, a really cold wind blew in; we had to eat with our coats on; no one was warm. Some sort of vestibule is required

    When on your 5th night in Las Vegas you just want some REAL food, this is a great place. At the busy LINQ, this BBQ casual restaurant serves some seriously good food. Both diners had the Carolina Pulled Pork dinner - and can recommend. Served with french fries and cole slaw, along with pickles, a slice of onion, a bit of corn bread. It's a busy noisy fun place with excellent service and food!!

    Read many great reviews while planning our winter trip to Vegas. Restaurant exceeded my expectations. My sister and I ordered the pig out platter. Everything was delicious. Ribs, brisket,chicken and pulled pork to die for. Our awesome server ( sorry I can’t remember her name) made great suggestions. We had enough leftovers to take back to our hotel room. She suggested we get buns to make sandwiches for later. I ate my leftover brisket sandwich on my flight back home. Key lime pie (yummy., gigantic portions.,women’s bathroom not exactly the best . One stall out of order.

    We had a large group of nine for dinner, we sat outside on the patio. There were several heaters around and everyone was comfortable. Service was excellent, attentive and efficient. We enjoyed the live music that was there that night. Food was good, we enjoyed appetizers and entrees.

    Got the BBQ combo and picked the brisket and ribs with fries and collard greens for sides. Both meats were cold and sides were luke warm. The brisket was dry and hard. The ribs were hard too but maybe because it was cold. Told the waiter the brisket was hard and she brought a new batch which was warm and better but still not as good as expected. When it got cold it got dry so didn’t care to eat anymore. The whole meal to celebrate New Year’s Eve was a disappointment. Won’t be coming back. Btw, they charge $1 for a side of ranch for my fries. Good grief!

    Food wasn't very tasty in my opinion. The pulled pork wasn't bad however it wasn't the Carolina pork that I'm accustomed to. The key lime pie and banana pudding was DISGUSTING.

    The ribs were absolutely spectacular! The brisket not so much. The mac-n-cheese was gummy and the baked beans had way to many onions in them. The cornbread was also good and the slice of pecan pie was a slice of heaven!

    Our server (FireFox) was the Greatest! Attentive, nonintrusive, and brought the good news of Coke products!! One of our party had 4 Diet Cokes before, during and after and he brought her one to go!! Pure heaven for those of us who don’t drink Pepsi!! The food was good and prices reasonable.
