So I popped in for a bite to go, and the server recommended the brisket sandwich. It was fair size (see photo) and tasty. I will definitely go back as there were a number of menu items I wanted to try.

Above average BBQ. I understand some of the complaints about portion size (I'm always skeptical when I'm told I'm getting an exact measurement and it's in one piece) and BBQ can be subjective but I enjoyed everything I tried (brisket, ribs, beans). I didn't feel like it was the best BBQ I've ever tried, but I would return. Cheapest JD around!

I've been to a lot of BBQ joints, this place is pretty good. Reasonably priced.The flavor is spot on! We ordered pulled pork and the baby back ribs. Pulled pork had a vinegary tang to it, reminded me of the pork I get from North Carolina, delicious! This is served by the 1/2 pound.
The baby back ribs were fall off the bone. Great flavor, just enough sauce. Had potato salad on the side. Flavor-wise, it tasted like a potato salad....texture-wise it was clumpy mashed potatoes. The texture threw me off but it was still good.The bar was good. Had a nice selection of craft beers.

I gave this place 4 stars because my food was cold. I read a review on here prior to going, and they said the food was cold. I was hoping this place was just having a bad day. It seems like a normal thing now that I've experienced it too. Service is great, and everyone is friendly. The flavor is totally there, but for the price you're paying, you'd expect to have a hot meal.
