Right next door to the Holiday Inn Express, the best hotel in Columbus. They also offer a 10% discount for people who stay in the hotel. Attentive staff and really great food. For a barbeque place, they sure put a lot of effort into their...More

Took customers there for lunch. Several of us had the Lunch portion brisket with a side of bourbon mashed sweet potatoes. For me, the brisket was cooked properly, very flavorful, moist and priced reasonably. Others commented the food was very good. The service was good...More

Clean place. Nice staff Food was cold almost frozen. Will not return... If I knew of a different BBQ place in Columbus I would direct you there.. But I don't know of any. Just hit a taco truck. You will get better food there.

The service was good but the food was terrible. I had a pull pork sandwich which the meat was dry and the bun was hard! Would not recommend this meal to anyone. :-(

The food is generally pretty good here, but the service is absolutely horrible. We waited 10 minutes for everything we requested, including drink refills and BBQ sauce. The food was cold by the time we got the BBQ sauce. I don't just mean on one...More
