I enjoy having dinner at this restaurant. The service is always excellent and their brisket is delicious.

Usually pretty busy, somewhat loud, service is so so considering how busy it is, not much of a personal touch. Nice atmosphere, plenty of room, food is good, a little pricey for what your buying

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Willits Town Center. Everything's delicious. Our favorite app is the bacon wrapped shrimp. We love the salads with salmon. You can't make a bad choice here!!

Solid barbecue in Willits. We enjoyed brisket (choice of lean or fatty, or both), ribs, and pulled pork. Try the fried pickles appetizer. Saw a review about gourmet cuisine and I would only say that this is barbecue, not French fusion cuisine. Arrive with the...More

We are a neighborhood-oriented, made from scratch, casual restaurant. The feel is young, hip transcending the perception of BBQ restaurants past. Serving a variety of draft and bottled microbrews representing local breweries and popular brews from great BBQ regions (Texas, the Carolinas, Memphis/Arkansas and Kansas City) we feature an approachable wine list and a full line of spirits. The menu is driven by the chefs and their Southern roots, the Great American BBQ traditions as well as seasonal and regional products.
