First of all, the food is a delicious 5. St. Louis ribs, brisket, pulled pork -- all tender and very appetizing. For sides, french fries and the baked beans were well received at our table. The red beans and rice were the best, plain looking...More

Ordered a take away in August 2015. The Brisket was just amazing! Very appetizing and a definite value for money! Would recommend everyone a fan of Briskets to try it! Wish I could come back to have it again!!

Blues music on the speakers, but not loud. Decent beer list, comparable if not a little less varied than competing places on the strip. I avoided the bbq due to reviews and word of mouth, but the burgers and fries were great. not expensive, but...More

Yep, even better than the lizard! Big juicy smoky wings with amazing sauces. We had herb buffalo, jerk and the house Carolina. Couldn't tell you which was my fav. The fries were great as well. No frills decor - well the ceiling is amazing -...More
