If you want good quality BBQ in a suitable ambiance service with engaging efficiency, then look no further. If you're not sure what to have try the ribs/chicken combo. All in all it was just what I hoped it would be.

BBQ restaurant style pit with great beer and bbq smoked food like ribs, brisket, pulled pork and smoked chicken. Most of all the deep fried tasty chicken was excellent. Moist, tender, juicy. Very good home made sauces. You're going to eat good today..

Wonderful atmosphere and great selection of smoked meat. We sampled: nachos; slider with mixed bbq meat; burger; brisket burger. All with various sides. All very tasty with the great smokey bbq flavour we were after. Staff were all friendly too.
