This is by far the most disappointed I've been in a restaurant. The food looks great and with the high prices, you trust that you'll love what you'll get. The food quality is really low, if any. My friend even sent his back to the...More

Very delicious food, I ordered the beef brisket sandwich and the taste was amazing . However the onion rings were a bit oily for my taste.

Tried the pulled pork sandwich and the brisket sandwich. Pulled pork was delicious, but the brisket was the best brisket I've ever had! Seriously amazing! Sides were a nice kicker also. Great little bbq spot, the meat smoker was legit!

My family and I came here for a Western treat and everyone was overjoyed. We had the gumbo, brisket, ribs, and pulled pork.... everything was fantastic. Very authentic. The music was great, the staff was very welcoming, the owner was lovely to chat with!

Friendly and helpful staff. I had the gumbo and loved it, not too spicy. My wife had pulled pork in a bun which she described as "delicious". I had a weird melon flavoured beer - won't do that again, but that was my own fault....More
