I had the Brisket and beans and coleslaw all were excellent. With a lot of restaurants the sides are an after thought. Not at firewater. The beans were infused with a nice smoke flavor and they were savory and sweet. A bonus was the fact that bits of brisket are cooked in with the beans, they are in a word amazing. Coleslaw was served cold and was fresh and very tasty a touch of tang to the slaw. My brisket was fantastic but if it was not you would not have even heard about the sides. Nice folks, great food. They cater.

Located in a small strip mall, not easily seen from Roosevelt road especially if you are not a passenger in the car. But well worth seeking out! My first experience and I was quite impressed. Very friendly staff, clean and the selection is wide. Had the brisket, slaw & beans.. Fantastic! Plenty of choices, and a great selection of sauces. All sauces are on the table so you can try them all or stick to your favorite without having to request more. Small space, laid out well and very friendly. Nothing super special about the place except for the food! What I had was spectacular! Can't wait to return to try their other offerings. If you enjoy good barbecue this is the place for you!

It was a take out order of the rib tips and spicy sausage, the meat was very dry, and I was given very hard end pieces that looked more like beef jerky,not satisfied at all, wil not return, very disappointed

Love this fun little place!! Pulled pork is awesome, ribs are best around better than the Patio, fresh cut fries, Mac n cheese and baked beans!!
This time I tried the loaded pulled pork French fries with melted cheese, BBQ sauce and hot sauce to die for and you will not be able to finish it for $7.99!!

The most difficult part was finding the restaurant, but we did. It is located in a medium-sized strip mall on the north side of Roosevelt Rd. It is a small restaurant with a few regular tables and some high tables. We ordered a full slab of ribs with creamy slaw, sweet potato fries and BBQ brisket beans. We also tried the cornbread. The corn bread was excellent. The sweet potato fries had brown sugar sprinkled on them - they were absolutely delicious. The ribs were definitely of the fall-off-the-bone type. We also tried a small order of fried cookie dough for dessert. Very rich and very good. Maria was the order taker and she was very personable.
