Description: Located on the bank of the river Dee at a spot known locally as the Groves, in the the heart of the historic city of Chester. We are fanatical about flames; silly about smokers and utterly obsessed with the smells, tastes and traditions of the Deep South. Our smokin' hot menu is available all day every day, from smokehouse classics including ribs, Texas style beef brisket, to steak and burgers. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week and a specially designed kids menu that includes ‘grown-up’ tastes and some fun healthy options, the entire family can experience the flavours of the deep South.

Went for a birthday treat with family. The food was excellent, 3 of us had the rib deal the other had a burger. Wrong burger brought out, but better customer service you will not find. An absolute pleasure. Thank you to all the staff.

Visited this restaurant yesterday with my family, where we decided to celebrate her birthday there. What can I say, but excellent staff especially Matthew who advised us on what to eat and I must say he was spot on. The food was outstanding and the food we ordered came to us so quickly and the price was just as good. We were amazed with everything from the entrance,seating, the toilets and even a small cinema for the children and adults. Thank you Matthew for making us all feel welcomed and explaining the background of the restaurant. This restaurant is a must to visit any day of the week to eat eat and eat.

My email obviously was taken with a pinch of salt.

We came in for dinner yesterday in Chester at about 6:30pm and sat right at the front in the high stalls.
We where having a great meal and just watching the guys work hard.
Until we noticed something pretty shocking and didn’t want to raise it at the time as we where celebrating a new job and didn’t want to cause a fuss.
Well we where watching the guy at the pass with tattoos on his hands. He had a burger all set up and he had what looked like two beef patties and cheese on this bun. It seemed a little odd as he was unsure what was going on. He then took off the patties and put them on another bun. All fine. Although he kept asking for a veggie. We carried on watching as we new what was going to happen as he didn’t through the bun away. He asked over and over for a veggie. He then turned over the lettuce didn’t throw it away and carried on asking for a veggie. The veggie came promptly went on to the bun that had the beef originally on it and then sent out to the table.
I assume this is not common practice and I also believe a little unethical to that veggie.
It kind of blew our minds as it was so easy the just reset the bun. But turning the lettuce is outrageous.
I look forward to hearing your comments on this matter as we could of raised an issue at the time but thought it better to email.
The integrity of your brand has now been questioned by myself and my girlfriend.
I look forward to your response as this is quite an issue and one that needs to be raised. What else do you get up to when you can’t see.
