Brazen BBQ Smokehouse and Bar is great for lunch or dinner. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The food is good with a definite Southern influence. The sides are great--especially the Brussel sprouts. We, unfortunately, did not have the fries. They looked crispy and well...More

Everything about their food is amazing--from the moist meat, to the delicious sauces and rubs. Their sides are yummy, too. The restaurant decor is wonderful.

Menu said that the Texas brisket was "juicy" - not! Plenty of meat, but it was very lean and required quite a bit of chewing and sauce to eat it. Mashed potatoes were good.

Nice bbq, quick seated service, we had a mixture of chicken, pork, brisket along with Texas toast and cornbread. The food was quickly served and full of flavour. I wasn't a big fan of the toast but the pulled pork was delicious. Easy to find...More
