Myself and my fiancé ate here during the week. We were certainly not disappointed! Really liked the decor felt like we were in a BBQ joint in America. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. I ordered the brisket and can honestly say it was the nicest brisket I have tasted since returning to Ireland!

I would definitely come back here, good setting,very good food, friendly staff and very reasonable price!

I can get enough of this place, Great food time and time again, I had BBQ combo pulled pork and baby back ribs and they were amazing, They had a new server and he was a bit too slow but besides of that all experience was great! It's my 3rd time eating there and I will definitely be back again

I found the food here to be absolutely horrendous.

I got the half chicken. It was clearly a dwarf chicken who had no wings. Some sort of abomination. It was smothered in a BBQ that was sickeningly sweet. Tiny portion, no wing for some reason and BBQ sauce that was really terrible. Just sugar, no flavour.

My 2 sides were the corn on the cob which was over done. I am presuming it was probably sitting there for a while. I ate a couple bites of it and left the rest. Disgusting. I also got coleslaw which was AOK.

The girl serving us was very friendly. Can't fault that. But I am here for the food, not the service.

Was this an off day? I just don't understand how they can mess this up so much. I felt like I was eating at an overpriced airport restaurant.

Visited here a few months back, and I was more than happy with my experience, I had the brisket and it was nice, good beef, nice and tender. Will be back when I'm in Dublin again!
