We were very excited that a new kosher restaurant was opening, on featuring seasoned, smoked, and slow-barbecued meat. The southern theme was manifest in the southern roots music in the background, the casual presentation of the food on butcher paper and drinks in fruit jars, and the seasonings. All the main BBQ items are $30 for half a pound, with cole slaw and pickled vegetables.
We ordered ribs, and were surprised that they came already sliced off the bone. Only when we were presented with the check did we learn we'd been given brisket instead of ribs. Their response: "Oh, it's the same price." The waiter had never checked up on us so we could query.
My wife had ordered onion rings, and about half a dozen huge onion rings doused in a mayo sauce arrived. This was a $13 order. She also ordered an order of tongue to go, and when she ate it the next day, said it was exquisite and worth a return trip.
They automatically add 18% gratuity, and added it to the to-go order, too. I think they need this to pay their labor costs; it was incredibly over-staffed, with 8 employees on the floor, when they could have gotten by with half that.
I'll try this place one more time for the ribs, but overpriced bad service might put this place out of business before I get back there.
