Originally being from Texas I never really have high hopes for bbq places in Canada (no disrespect, Canada is just not known for bbq). When we pulled up the first thing we said was it smells like real bbq. We were plesantly surprised that this...More

Went there because it had good reviews. We both had a half rack of BBQ ribs. We love ribs and have eaten them all over N America. Our dinners today were the second worst ribs ever. They were tough and chewy and full of gristle....More

Hello Shermanmom, sorry you didn't enjoy your ribs at the pit. They should be tender but not fall pof the bone since they are smoked. That been said, we should have offered you an other option to make sure you were happy with your meal...More

Hello Mariza, thanks for your review. The flies situation just started with warmer weather and we are finding a solution as we speak. About the food, is there anything we should do a different way to enhance the experience? Thanks again.

I've had dinner here a few times and it's okay. Food is nothing special, service and pricing were fine.
