This restaurant has closed. Shortly after moving to a downtown location, they have closed their doors.

This was our first time to visit this restaurant.... And our last unfortunately. The food was poor. We had supposedly a southern-style catfish plate and pulled chicken and beef. The only part of the meal that is worth mentioning was the fried potatoes which are good. It was all so pricey at $40 for those two plates. The pulled chicken... More

Server was very nice, the brisket and pulled pork was OK, I've had better but this was OK for a quick bite. We tried 4 different sauces and like the meat they were OK, the salad bar had plenty of choices and my side order of spicy mac and cheese was certainly spicy enough, first bite made me cough it...

I've never had BBQ this good in Wisconsin before. The owner is very involved and clearly very passionate about what he does. There are numerous sauces to sample and choose from and typical meat selections for BBQ: brisket, pulled pork, ribs, etc. Prices are pretty reasonable. If you're looking for bbq and don't have a plane ticket in hand, this... More

Wanted to try new location much easier to get a table and they had a Friday night fish buffet a winner in my book,a bit pricey for a buffet but good all you can eat redfish,catfish fried chicken , stuffed grouper plus sides, my favorite Mac and cheese with andouille and crawfish and salad bar overall a good upgrade

Checked this place out in the new space in downtown Sun Prairie. Atmosphere is casual like being at a picnic which is fine for this type of food. Picnic tables, sandwiches served in plastic baskets, paper napkins. Sauces served in plastic cups. Other other foods are served on regular plates. Salad bar comes with dinner. Was surprised to see this... More

My wife and I stopped here after a Costco run just to try something different. Reviews looked good, and I love BBQ. Place looked promising...smelled of smoke, different sauces to try, kitchen tables for seating. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich, and thought it was good. I ordered a half rack of ribs, back ribs per the cook. That... More

Went for lunch. When you walk in, there is a table with bread pieces and samples of the different BBQ sauces available to pick from. I ordered the pork brisket sandwich which already had a dry rub seasoning on it. It was very good and had a nice kick to it. I also got the N.O.L.A. BBQ sauce. Nice and... More
