We are not sure what they do to the meat, but it is far too mushy. Smothering it in sauce defeats the purpose of enjoying good BBQ.

Our waitperson disappeared completely while we waited for a meal correction. Food was okay, but not really great.

Josh does some really nice things with rubs and fruit hastings, making their barbecue unique and delicious.

Short ribs can be gone before you arrive, so get their phone number to call to reserve before you come in to eat or pick up to-go.
