We were here for a late lunch/early dinner and there was no wait. Great bar-b-que choices with many sides. The brisket was lean and tender. The black bean pulled pork nachos were large and flavorful. The service was fast and friendly. A fun eclectic place.

If you're looking for the best BBQ in town, look no further. Hands down the best. Never had a bad meal here, and I've had many, many meals here over the years.

Great food for a large group. The meat choices are always excellent. Pulled pork and pulled chicken with your choice of sauce. Salt potatoes, corn, salad, and beans were also available. Always good beer, homey benches and tables, and good service round out the experience....More

I travel throughout the country and try to take in some local flavor. I had some company with me so we ventured downtown for some Northeastern BBQ. The food was fantastic and had its own unique taste. The atmosphere was wonderful. The Mac and cheese...More
