Do not order new grill plater with sausage. Chicken cold, no sausage available 15 min after we ordered it, brisket good and fries old and cold. Horrible. Go to Famous Dave's they have great platers for 2 always hot and no long wait. Horrible service and we sat at the bar!

Great BBQ joint!! I had the brisket and the pulled pork street tacos and added some KC BBQ sauce. Yummy!! My son had wings that were very nicely done. Another friend had the loaded fries. Another great choice. Our server, Megan, could not have been sweeter or more attentive. Fantastic service. Next time we're in town, we will go back.

Sat at bar area. Waited for over 20 minutes to get any service. Bartender saw us trying to get her attention, but would not stop to help. Even made sure to ask if the people beside us needed a refill. Very disappointing.

We stopped in for dinner and it was good as you expect from the franchise. The ribs were good but the sides had room for improvement. The service was very good and friendly.

Went here for the first time and loved it. The prices were good, the staff was very friendly and helpful. They made suggestions as to what to order. The service was fast and the food was delicious. The portions were huge.. We will definitely visit again next time we are in the area.

The pulled pork nachos were the best thing about this place next to the wings which were amazing. Otherwise the service was mediocre, they didn't have half the things on their beer list and the atmosphere was a bit off. We went middle of the afternoon so maybe it's better later in the evening?
