Would give 4 1/2 stars if I could! We were a family of 3 tagging along with a group of 20+ hockey players in town for a tournament and the owner was gracious and friendly.

Bennett has done an amazing job here at creating an authentic and welcoming BBQ-gumbo-southern cuisine informal bistro in the middle of the New England countryside. A warm and welcoming and tasty addition to the food scene or Inns/deli's/coffee shops... if you are in Sharon, drop by. If you are close - its worth the detour. Tasty beyond belief and yet... More

This small BBQ joint in the middle of the quaint village of Sharon surprises. We have been several times now and the food and service are consistent. The BBQ is excellent, from the pulled pork and brisket to the ribs, to the beer can chicken, as are the sides (I am a particular fan of the deviled eggs with hot... More

Fabulous BBG pulled pork, corn bread and other delights normally found only in the south or special food areas in cities like Sylvia's in Harlem NY. Charismatic owner and great staff. They also cater special events in Litchfield CO.

Mostly a take-out place, very informal with scant seating. Excellent rack of ribs, and also pulled pork. Reasonable prices.

The food was fabulous here......We were here for a wedding but were looking for a place to eat for lunch. Our AirBnB had their menu in a binder in the apartment and it looked really appealing and boy was it! Truly worth it people.

We were on a motorcycle ride. When we got into Sharon area we didn't think there would be too many offerings but this was one. Went in for lunch. Small place, you order at desk and they bring to you. You return to desk to pay. We had BBQ sandwiches, which all came with one side. We had pulled pork,... More
