Came here for lunch and had wings and BBQ sandwiches. They are apparently well known for the wings, but I thought they were just ok. The sandwiches however were really big and really good. Pulled pork sandwich was heaping with pork and very tasty. The...More

Great little place tucked in the city. The BBQ was delicious and the beer was cold, what more could you ask for. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Ate here for dinner the other night and wife and I had the Smokey Q and mac-n-cheese and hash and grits. It all was delicious and for a Friday night it didn't seem busy at all.

Very tasty bbq, ordered the Texas style brisket and fries. Brisket had a good smoke flavor and good char on it. Beer was cold also. Clean and inviting, sat at bar as all tables were taken.

My family and I stopped in for dinner on 8/22. It has the right ambience for a smokehouse. I highly recommend the smoked chicken wings, they were pretty good. The portions were large and more than enough food for the family.
