We ordered the two meat combo w/brisket and tips w/greens and cole slaw. The wait was 25 minutes for our to go order. The brisket was amazing, the rest was average.

This place was very good. It is hands down the best BBQ I have had since living in Portland. I ordered the pork rib dinner. The sides I decided on were red beans and rice, baked beans and a cornbread muffin. The beans were excellent...More
