Located in "downtown " Waltham on a street (Moody) with many restaurants. We went because of the good reviews from Trip Advisor. Not much street parking (spaces are carefully marked with white dividing lines). Public parking lot is located about 4 stores past the restaurant - turn right and proceed down the alley. Not a fancy place, but definitely fun.... More

I live right down the road and my boyfriend and I visit about once a month. We went last night on a Sunday and the service and food were fantastic! My boyfriend is a huge BBQ fan, and he loves everything on the menu. I would recommend going on a slower night because the service can be a hit or... More

My wife and I met a pair of our friends here for dinner the other night, we had been here one time before with them, both times the food has been very good. I ordered some sort of multi-tip meal with bison, steak, and chicken tips, and my wife had a burger. It was all quite good.

Great little find on Moody Street. The staff are all super friendly, great range of beers and the food was fantastic. The Hot Scrimps are a great little starter and the chilli dog was as good as they get. The homemade coleslaw is the best I have ever had! Local food, local beer and great atmosphere.

Been here about four times. Always satisfies. Sat at bar last night. Bartender very friendly, nice beer selection. Had the pulled pork which was delicious and the wife had ribs- superb. Very good price point and great food. Our regular spot before or after the movies. Keep up the good work!

We were a party of 4. My wife and I ordered the ribs and chicken combo. $25. We were told by the waitress that we could have the half salad as one of our sides. We ordered that. The salads came out in about 5 minutes. We couldn't finish our salads when the main meal came out. The ribs and... More

Good Beer selection and some good smoked wings. The bbq wasn't as good as down south, but not bad. Get the cornbread, wings, and a brew

I was very disappointed by my recent visit to Bison County. I had the ribs and brisket combo. I found both to be dry and lacking in flavor. I had visited a few years ago and remembered the food being much better. It was unfortunate. I was really looking forward to some good Q.

I love this restaurant. You can have anything from the best ribs in town to a Mexican-style dinner. My favorite is the chili rellano but the ribs are outstanding too. They have a huge selection on tap beer in the bartender's make a great mixed drink. This is a restaurant I go back to all the time when I'm in... More
