Really good barbeque. Cool atmosphere, can't go wrong here! Building is an railway station. Food is the best BBQ in Rochester.

The ribs were virtually meatless and dry. All the sides were over seasoned! Service was fast and courteous!

Made reservations for 9 pm and when we arrived we were seated promptly. We ordered the sweatheart deal for 2. Full rack of the best ribs one could ever ask for. They were smoky and flavorful. It included 4 side. Also very good.
