The food was average here but the service was so outstanding and friendly and the atmosphere so pleasant that I am giving 4 stars. Not much else to say, but that the atmosphere and furnishings and decor were considerably above what the normal or average bbq place is and the service was just amazing. It was really fast and super friendly and attentive but never overly so. Overall, we had a very pleasant dining experience here and it was nice to at least taste east coast bbq. I was interested to taste how east coast might differ from midwest and southern which I am super familiar with, and it wasn't a lot different. So for dining in, this is a very nice place. If you're just considering the food though it was average. My pulled pork sandwich was certainly edible and fine, but it wasn't at the level of places I really like such as Joe's of Kansas City (formerly Oklahoma Joe's), Arthur Bryant's or even the Dixie Pig in Blytheville, AR. But, the decor and service made it a really nice dine in experience. Prices were quite reasonable and our total tab for dinner including a beer for my wife ended up being just over $23 before tip. Value is very good--beer was only $5.

The food was good, the service was very good. Will totally go there again even though it's a drive from Millsboro, DE (my summer home away from home)

I am giving them 4 stars for the food but 2 stars for the service. Our food was delicious, baby back ribs, fell off the bone, bbq chicken very moist and tender. I would love their cornbread recipe! Our issue was the service. Our waiter, Rob, was a fast talker and never checked back to see how we were doing or refill water glasses. I ordered brisket, came back and told me it was not "ready", I would have to order something different. No problem at all. He pushed Blue Moon as a beverage, told me that as tonights special, Blue Moon came with a complimentary glass. The problem was the billing. He charged us for the (extra)brisket dinner and charged us $1 for the glass. We caught the dinner upcharge but not the glass charge til we got home (2 hours away). I had originally told him that I didn't want the glass. He came back with our leftover package and suggested that since it was already paid for with the drink, I could still take it home.I said okay. Clearly not complimentary if you are going to charge me for it. Its not the dollar but the manner in which it was marketed.

Our family loves this restaurant. The food is delicious, atmosphere is fun, and the staff is friendly and attentive. Portions are very generous too! As for the sides, they are all great, but have to say the Mac and cheese is really tasty! Love the hush puppies and slaw too. Got take-out this time and we were so impressed. They pack all parts separately in containers, so your sandwich doesn’t get mushy, and you can assemble when ready. Great idea!
