We took our food and drink to go as we had touring plans that afternoon. A local friend recommended this place to us as a good place to eat. Everything tasted great and the server was able to get us our order quickly.

Really great spot for lunch in downtown Fairbanks. Highly recommended with great service and really great food. Quick lunch while on a break from the bus. Perfect spot for lunch.

Great BBQ and the Cowboy Sundae is a tasty concoction of BBQ beans, beef, pork, or chicken BBQ, and topped with fresh cole slaw.

Despite some bad reviews this was a good BBQ eatery. Of course it's not like down south cooking it's Alaska. It was good and plentiful. Great beer,staff very friendly. Would go there again.
