Maybe we are spoiled, since we visit Kansas City frequently and always have barbecue, but we were disappointed by the food we got. I had a "sliced" brisket sandwich, which was "pulled", not sliced. To some people, this would not be a big deal, but to barbecue people, it really is. We had burnt ends, and they were good, but not great. The fried okra was the best of everything we had. Service was OK, but then there were only three couples in the restaurant. Prices are on the steep side.

Small restaurant but worth a visit. Brisket was tender, sauce was great. Made interesting choices of side orders. Go with waitress's recommendations. Very knowledgeable.

Friendly, very clean, reasonable pricing and GREAT food....hamburgers wonderful. Great wine and beer selection. Cozy, small and feels like a neighborhood restaurant. Owner on site most of time and thankful for his clientele. You can go in solo and sit with folks and take out available.
