Found this place entirely by accident, decided to splurge and get the Dino bone beef rib. It was amazingly tender and delicious, would absolutely recommend it easily fed me and my fiancé for $30. Friends of ours tried the pork belly and pork shoulder both of which were fantastic as well. The smoked Mac and cheese was alright, the spice blend they put in it is strong for the mild cheese they use.

Disclaimer: I'm a bit of a BBQ snob (see my dozens of other BBQ reviews) Not recommended. The food from this place is a mixed bag - ranging from awful (do not eat) to good. I can't even just blame one bad item, considering I ordered a fairly large selection of food. The good: The pork ribs were smoked well and decently flavoured. Nearly fall off the bone was perfect. Smoked wings were a treat, fairly smokey and meaty. Not sure why one would get smoked chicken instead. The okay: The fries, potato salad, and chips were fa... read more

All I can say is YUM!! I ordered the cheddar pork sandwich. Their bbq is the perfect mix of tang and sweet and the bread was nice and crispy. The staff was really nice too. You need to check this place out if you haven't already - honestly, I might go back tomorrow 😋

The staff is friendly and makes good suggestions. The facility is clean with openly accessible sinks to wash in front of others. The meat is fast and hot with a good variety of sauces. The sides are mildy warm. Avoid the green beans. Bring friends to help you finish. Plenty of boxes to take it with you. This is a neighborhood gem.

If you need a quick bbq fix for cheap the rib tips can do it. 1/2 lb $8 bucks! Mustard and the garlic sauces are delicious. I also got the ribs and sliced brisket combo with coleslaw and fries.. the coleslaw is mayo based but not too creamy. It is perfect in my opinion and tasty. The fries are good but not the best. I love everything. I probably change the fries for something else. I travel all over the country and always stop for bbq. I’d give 8 out of 10. It’s not the best I’ve had, but it’s damn good. I hope this helps... read more
