Told this was one of the best BBQ places around so had to try it. Meat ( brisket and sausage) was good but sides and appetizer were disappointing - way over fried tomatoes and onion rings - very little taste in the coleslaw.

The BBQ was good. I wouldn’t say it was the best I’ve had but that is a matter of option. I thoruoghly enjoyed it though. The brisket was juicy and flavorful and I loved the mashed sweet potatoes. Spare ribs were excellent. Beer was cold.

The brisket was great. Wish they had baked beans on the menu. Pork was good. Service was friendly. We weren't sure where to park. Construction nearby.

The whole package ... upstairs, downstairs, bar, food, etc. is excellent, though I was just a little disappointed in the food. The barbecued chopped steak was superb, but I thought the other meats could have been a bit tastier. It seemed like the food may...More
