We dined with another couple and used a Groupon...Service was great, atmosphere was fun, and food was good...Don't anticipate returning as the cost for a meal without a coupon is quite hefty...

Now I eat a great deal of food and can honestly say that the BBQ here is absolutely delicious. The alcohol menu is extensive and if you like meat and booze...this place you will like. The brisket made me sad. But only sad because I did not wear my stretchy pants to have a second order. Delicious.

We went there as a group of 6. Had the Elvis platter and no way could eat it all. Best part had to be the ribs, no wait, the brisket... actually the pulled pork and sausage were top shelf too. Staff and service was great.

Took my family of four and had a combo platter. Lots of food and variety. Sausage and brisket was awesome. Corn bread is a nice touch. Smells great just walking in the door. Nice casual place to go with a good atmosphere.

This place is amazing if you are a carnivore. I get there meat platter for special occasions because I tend to over eat every time I get it. Service is good and the owner is very nice.

Great atmosphere, great music, and a wide selection of bourbons. If you like ribs and southern foods, this is the place to go!

The food and drink was as to be expected, the staff was the amazing part. I love the way people in Kelowna treat you like they've known you for years, like a good friend. This place is no exception. The downside is the small size of this location but if you are going for something more intimate than the big... More

This place is one of the best rib places I have encountered. Not over priced at all and a real down to earth atmosphere. The ribs were incredible. They say their brisket or pork is their signature, but if those are better than their ribs then this place is somewhere I have to come again to!
