Driest brisket ever, the food was 2 out of 10 in my book, could barely taste the smokiness. Time to retrain the kitchen staff, FOH service was pleasant. Won’t be recommending this bbq place to anyone.

I had lunch here while on business in Miami and was disappointed with the Brisket and Beef, covered in gravy and very bland - friendly staff were helpful tho.
