The food was so good. The Mac and cheese is awesome. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. You never know if Kid Rock will stop by while you are enjoying your meal, as he does whenever he is in town.

Great atmosphere. Fantastic food as well. The Barbecue is a fun experience. Only draw back is the wait time and trying to get in.

The wait for a table can be lengthy most of the time. Good to have the upstairs for over flow and for casual drinks. The place is eclectic with a down home feel. Service is usually above average as is the food. It's a staple...More

The food is always great and the staff is very friendly. Highly recommend the brisket and mac and cheese, but you really can't go wrong no matter what you order!
