Service was quick. I ordered the brisket plate. It came out very quickly. That's where it stopped being good. Brisket was sliced with the grain, leaving long, chewy pieces. Who ever heard of slicing long grain meat this way? It had absolutely no smoke flavor whatsoever. The secret sauce isn't very good either. I'll tell you the secret, they put... More

A perfect place for an outdoor meal. Dog-friendly... to the point of giving each of our puppies a rib bone to chew on. On the human side of the menu, quite possibly the BEST fried green tomatoes I have ever eaten. On the beverage side, GREAT mojitos.

We visited this place because we were intrigued about the BBQ cantina infusion. We got a seat quickly but it took a bit to be greeted by a server. Once she did finally greet us it was as if she was overwhelmed and unhappy even though the place was less than busy on a Saturday afternoon. We ordered the fried... More

Blowin Smoke hit the spot for lunch. Great combination of bbq and southern inspired tacos. Service was quick and friendly. Patio is a fun spot on nice days. Recommend the Memphis Belle, Island Hopper and the fried pickles.

Waited 20 minutes and was never approached by a server. Got up and informed a member of the staff which showed zero interest in helping me out. Finally after a 25 minute wait a server approached us and took a drink order but would not take our food order because she said another server would come back to take our... More

We went on a whim and we are very happy with our choice. We chose the nachos for appetizers. It was phenomenal and very filling. I don't know who made the guacamole, but it was divine!! I got the Fajitas Plate... the spices with the meat was great. There was a slight kick of heat in it, but nothing too... More

Not an expansive menu but something for all tastes, barbecue was perfect...nice ambiance. Drinks were great and the bartender was very helpful suggesting drinks and food, being open air it was fine for dogs & kids.

Excellent prices, seating was plentiful and food was delicious. Most of the restaurant can be enjoyed outdoors and the service was great!

Great place for people watching. The waitress was good, the staff was friendly. Most of my food was really good, but some of the sides were bland. I would definitely give them another chance though.
