Great music good food. Service was good. Place was packed but not overly crowded. Will make it a must to go place anytime I'm back in Nashville.

I wish I had the ribs since the reviews are so good for them. We had the pulled pork and nachos. Pork was good, nachos too spicy for me, tasty though. The entertainment was okay this time, the time before was great.
