Food was really smoked. So if you like to really taste the smoked flavor then you will like the BBQ. BBQ sauces were not so good. Service was fast and friendly.
Twice we have dined here. Both times,the
service was poor. 25 minute wait to have a beer ! Tables are greasy, and music too loud. Problems could be fixed, but I bet they won't. Get some real wait staff already !!!!!
Server having a bad day. Texting too much. Great french dips
The title says i all. I'm easy to please but my date that night is a different story. She loved her meal and in turn was lovin me.Win Win!!!! Thanks Sids. for making me smile twice that night. You Rock
The food and service were very good, but even with our reservation they were completely out of their specialty Pork Ribs! The did get us the last 2 orders of the beef ribs, but it was considerably more expensive. This was at 7PM on a Saturday evening!
This is a go to place for meat. A little heavy on the smoke flavor, but very generous servings, and very attentive waitresses working very hard. We sat at the bar which made it more interesting. Lots of guys coming to watch the football.
There are few similar casual restaurants in the neighborhood with a cool vibe, good food, and great service. This is my new favorite when I don't want to drive all the way into Santa Cruz. Most restaurants in the Aptos are too stuffy and upscale.
If you like spicy BBQ in a BAR setting, you'll like this place. The food was good, but it was very noisy.
The good is always great! A bit loud so not a place to carry on conversations.
Best ribs ever!!! We will be back our next visit to the coast.
