A Yelp review:

This is some really good BBQ, and the price is good, too!

We had a combo of brisket, pork, and ribs, plus we managed to score some burnt ends, and it was all excellent. For sides we got the baked beans (wonderful), cheesy potatoes (yummy), cole slaw (meh), and cornbread (moist and sweet). The sauces were of the thick and sweet variety (as opposed to highly vinegar based) and were a nice compliment to the BBQ. However, I wish the spicy sauce had more kick.

Great BBQ, good prices, and totally worth the trip.

A Yelp review:

Come here for booze and pool and plenty of space. Food is good but not cheap and only if you get a good waitress. We waited over an hour for food and the manager went to get our almost cold food which seemed to have been done 20minutes earlier. They have communication issues with the kitchen it seems. They need to work on that. Other then that I keep coming for the not so crowded atmosphere and their booze and pool table. I really like it here but... Again their waitress-kitchen communication needs some serious re-engineering. Don't let my honest review discourage u, the people here are very nice and cool with figuring out any delays. 5 starz because the manager was awesome.
