As far as BBQ places go it's passable as a clean cookie cutter restaurant but it's BBQ specialty which is supposed to be ribs lacks a lot to be desired. They are nothing like the original from which the whole chain gets its name.More

The BBQ was very tasty, and once they took our order we received our food very quickly. My husband got the half chicken, and he loved it. He said you could tell that it had been cooked on the grill for a long time, and...More

The food was good, but not the best BBQ I had during my month in Montgomery. This is a place that has both atmosphere and good food. The places with the amazing BBQ don’t worry about having a flashy building in downtown. Overall. It was...More

Super clean and friendly. I recently had oral surgery and got some mushy sides and chocolate pie. I tried my daughters bbq and it was delicious and moist. But that chocolate pie is life😍More

This place is known for their BBQ, but I was not impressed. It was OK, but nothing to write home about. I wish I had tried their hamburger, as that looked pretty good.More

Stopped in for a light lunch. Good food, great beer offering. Our server didn't speak good English and got a little attitude when we questioned our beer order. Manager brought us over a correct order and something still didn't seem right, but all was good...More

The pulled pork and chicken were very good, but not the best I have ever had. The potato salad was delicious, but the baked beans were just so so. They were also out of several items due to a large catering event.

The restaurant was clean, well kept, and the staff was polite and helpful. We were there on a Friday night just after a Biscuit ballgame had started. Several items on the menu were unavailable - chicken wings and some of the craft beers on tap....More

I don't think they have beef. They do have chicken and turkey options.
