We have been to this place a few times and have found nothing exceptional about it. We also haven't found anything terribly bad about it. I find it a notch or two below City but this is the only BBQ joint in this area. We will continue to go but not top of our list.

We stopped in for a quick lunch on our way to downtown. the lunch specials are affordable and filling. We stopped on a Monday so the special was BBQ Pulled chicken with chips. It came out hot and fast, our waiter was just wonderful, super friendly. I would recommend this place for an informal cheap lunch.

The atmosphere was casual, prices were reasonable, and the wait staff was very nice. The flavor of the taco was good but I got several pieces of fat in it.

Awesome barbq. First the staff is super friendly and inviting. They were awesome. Food was terrific. I started with the fried pickle appetizer. Mmmm. I then had the 3 meat sampler platter.

I had dinner here, the sampler with baby back ribs, brisket, beans, and cole slaw. The dinner also came with two fried biscuits. I thought the ribs were good as they were well done, to me that means they easily pull apart and the meat in the cartilage just pulls apart too. The brisket was good too, it was just... More

This place is a regular stop on our restaurant rotation. Mouth watering BBQ as well as great tenderloin sandwiches. This is a must visit place if you're looking for good BBQ. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Kansas City style BBQ is featured in this local restaurant. Tracy was our waitress and walked us through the menu. Everything we ordered, from the brisket, to the pulled pork, to the brisket tacos, even the hamburger were very good. Don't skip the fried biscuits. They were amazing!

This was overall very good. I found that the staff was slow on a pick-up order. The food was good but a bit dry. I thought they were stingy on the sauces and sides. If I went back, I'd skip sides and just get meat. Brisket was very good.
