Great barbecue. I had the ribs and brisket. For sides I picked coleslaw and baked beans. Everything we had was completely top-notch. Barbecue sauces are fantastic the atmosphere is pretty cool. This competes with some of the best barbecue places I've been to before.

This place is packed during dinner hours especially. Very loud - but is 'an event' to go here. Food is ok; not my favorite BBQ but certainly some rave about it.
