We stopped in for lunch on a Wednesday, a bit after the noon rush. Approaching the restaurant was a sensory experience in itself because the smokers are out front and they were smokin'. The owner, Louis Sharke, a former head chef at two local five-star...More

Always excited to try new BBQ, tried their take out. Disappointed. Not up to Dickey's or Woodpile. Closer to touristy Famous Daves. In all fairness, will try eating in next time. But with options available, there's less incentive to return.

I love good BBQ so when am old friend suggested meeting up at this place for lunch, I was excited. I ordered the brisket and pulled pork combo. It was ok but it smelled a lot better than it tasted. There wasn't really anything special...More

Dropped by for dinner. Brisket was excellent, pulled pork tender, mixed with too much fat. Sides were disappointing. Beans, heavy with cinnimon; mac and cheese, dry; and gumbo, not right, like a heavy load of okra was added to regular batch. Just disappointing.

Everything here is made to perfection. The brisket is the best I've had from around the country. All the sides are homemade. Even the bread. Great friendly service. Must try!!

Delicious BBQ meats and sides. Food was hot, seasoned perfectly. Usual sides on the menu like beams, slaw, potato salad. Also had collards and a meat gumbo. Both were delicious and satisfying. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Loved the Detroit City Pop!! Would definitely return.

I have seen this new BBQ place for quite some time so I called in an order for a rack of ribs (ended up being about 2 1/2 lbs which cost about $27) and my husband picked them up. I thought it was a bit...More

Have eaten here a couple of times with my family. Casual atmosphere which is great with two small kids. The bread used for the sandwiches can't be beat. My husband loves the ribs.
