We visited after the summer crowds had gone back to their own states. Up in Smoke was limiting their hours after summer, but really the place was full on Friday night in September. I think that even though the clients filled all the seats inside and out, you could reasonably refer to the ambiance as intimate. We had the all... More

Since my husband LOVES BBQ, we decided to stop here for our first meal during our 3-day stay in Buffalo. We opted for the outdoor patio, and loved the cozy atmosphere and hanging planters everywhere. We decided to order the 2-meat entree with 2 sides and split it. We always like to try a local draft beer, and a tasty... More

This is THE WORST place to eat in Buffalo. The "barbecue" is enhanced with Liquid Smoke, the sides are bad (our coleslaw was way to the left of spoiled that it was bubbling it was so fermented) and the owners are downright liars and cheats. I am not sure why anyone goes to this place. Seriously. Drinks can range anywhere... More

Wow, an epic rant. If you have read this review please scroll down to others. We rarely get crucified like this. As for Epic Traveler, allow me address your issues... we do not use liquid smoke, our cole slaw does not bubble, those drink prices you listed are standard, I really don't intentionally keep my head down and pretend not...

We stayed in Buffalo for one night, and stopped into this place for dinner. It was a good experience. We both had brisket, which was very good. Local beers on tap for $4. Service was friendly. We got plates, and total came up to around $40 including premium sides and beer, for 2. Not cheap, but a fair price. Place... More

The ribs are fantastic. So is the cole slaw. Dining inside can be problematic (except in the winter), but the back patio is a great place in the summer. Tiny, tiny insides, but worth it if only for the ribs!

Sometimes it can get annoying trying to find a place to eat when you're vegetarian... Especially in a very small town. Luckily, this delightful, delicious restaurant gave both myself (veggie) and my boyfriend (carni) great options! Fair priced, and good beer. It's also located in what seemed to be an old house, so it does get pretty cozy!

If i could give 0 stars, I would. We're locals and like to support local businesses, but this is one I would avoid. We had a bad experience at this restaurant two years ago that involved them charging us $15 for a plate of chips and passing off a frozen pizza crust as their own. We explained our extreme dissatisfaction... More

Michael, dishonest just doesn't apply. I did respond to your last complaint and apologized because there was obviously a mistake on the $15 charge and it wasn't a plate of chips. The extra charge for the mac and cheese is stated plainly on our menu. We charge extra for this side because of the cost of the ORGANIC products we... More

It is an obvious favorite with the locals as it was packed and loud. We were able to find a table and tried the bruschetta appetizer, which was good. They serve local beers that are also gold. The pulled pork was delicious, the brisket a bit dry and the Mac n cheese is out of this world.
