I have to say, I enjoyed the food and the service was pretty good. Unfortunately the decor and atmosphere was quite sterile and bland. For an American BBQ I would have made it more kitsch without making it tacky. Maybe more blues feel to it...More

Each of the meat dishes were perfectly seasoned and cooked just right - moist and flavorful. The sides were all tasty as well. We did take away, but the cozy setting made us yearn for a return visit.
