We had the boneyard platter with a side of potato salad. The platter was amazing, meat was so good. Highly recommend the sticky ribs. Didn't like the pickled stuff in middle of platter, a fresh green salad or slaw would of worked better. Dipping sauces...More

Tasty food and good portion sizes. The $80 platter with a few starters easily fed three of us. Great brisket and a good selection of craft beers on tap. The Kamikaze wings are as described, they are very very hot, but the heat doesn't kill...More
