Service was good. Food was average. We were there during a very quiet time of the year. Boyfriend had a bbq sandwich and I ordered the pork nachos which came out missing the pork..

Food was excellent. My husband had the ribs and they had lots of meat on them. I had pulled pork sandwich. Good flavor. The sides left a little be desired.

BBQ was good and service was great! Conveniently located across the street from the Treehouse Cottages. Generous servings, one sampler plate was plenty for two people to share.

We ate dinner here and the menu was very good. Good variety for all tastes. The BBQ was excellent. My wife had the BBQ and I had a ham sandwich which was very good.

We stopped here for lunch after seeing Eureka Springs. The bbq sandwich and fries was very good. The servers were very nice. I would return if i was ever in this area again.

My daughter and I had the ribs! Really good and we got so many we couldn't eat them all. My husband had pulled pork and he had no trouble eating all of his. Our son-in-law had brisket and everyone enjoyed their meals.

Had a sampler plate, yum yum, it had ribs, pulled pork, shredded brisket, Cole slaw side, it was very good BBQ and the service was excellent. Noticed a lot of the locals go which to me says a lot about a place, a definite return.

Average BBQ, nothing special. We had the rib rack, it wasn't very tender but the flavor was good. This is the only BBQ place we tried while we were in town.

From the outside, it doesn't look like much but it the food on the inside that counts. Great, quick service and the ribs were so tender, no utensils are needed. Isn't that was BBQ is about, getting your fingers to lick off the sauce.

This is a relatively small BBQ cafe that one of the couples in our group had previously visited. We stopped on Friday for lunch and were immediately seated. The cafe had that wonderful smoked meat aroma and the decorations were BBQ or area related. We all ordered sandwiches - it was nice to have a choice of regular or large.... More
