A bit overrated. I ordered Brisket and smoked turkey. Brisket was a little dry but the warm BBQ sauce helped. There was nothing that was going to save the turkey. Remember turkey at your school cafeteria? That was better than what I had last night...no...More

It's a nice place to rest with a local beer and a good hamburger, not the best place in town, but works fine. the atmosphere is really great.

Attended a team dinner for business at this site. Food was OK, but nothing spectacular. Enjoyed the atmosphere and convenient to the hotel and downtown area.

Average. Nothing good ( or bad) about the meal we had here. Visited at the end of a 3 week Texas road trip and we had experienced some outstanding BBQ and Mexican meals. In comparison this was just ok. Had a fried dill pickle starter...More

We sat on the patio with our dog. Great BBQ restaurant right in Sundance Square across from the Worthington Hotel. We only had bowls of Brisket Stew with cornbread but it was legit. My wife was talking about it the next day. Great meal for...More
