A great BBQ bar atmosphere: a bit dark, music going, and a nice spread of beer and a good menu. We didn't go while there was live music, but it can apparently be loud, so watch out. Ribs and burgers were great. A dot off, though, because some of the sauce on the table was rancid. Ick!

Traveling from Connecticut to New York, we google searched a place open Monday, near 291 and the Mass Pike. This popped up, and it mapped as close to the highway. VERY GOOD barbecue, good sauce and really reasonably priced. We are barbecue snobs, and this is the real deal. The pulled pork was terrific, the brisket good, if a little... More

We came in when it wasn't too busy. Not sure if our waitress was new or not but she seemed uncertain of certain things on the menu along with some of the drinks. She was nice but probably could work on having more enthusiasm and knowledge of the menu especially working in the bar/restaurant atmosphere. My boyfriend had the blackened... More

Hearty portions and friendly service. Probably would have liked to visit in an evening when live music would be on - unfortunately this was not possible this time around.

For those of you who read my reviews, you know I speak honestly and to the point (at times!). This place had the BEST BBQ ribs I have eaten in a restaurant anywhere in America. Their Boubon BBQ sauce rocks! My friend had brisket and it was delish. Great greens, cole slaw. Very accommodating, superb staff, prices are "ok" since... More

We went to eat at 7:30 on a Thursday night for dinner. The place was busy with a mixed crowd of mostly middle-aged people. The service was attentive and prompt. The food was very good, with generous portions. My son had the double hamburger with waffle fries that was huge. I had the beef brisket sandwich which was also very... More

Not much competition on a Sunday night in Springfield for post Hockey game food & beer, maybe that's because this place has pt all the others out of business. Food was excellent, plenty of choice on the beer front and super service. Loads of TV's showing other sports to. Would recommend to anyone
