I had the burnt tips sandwich and coleslaw. I thought it was very good! We visited on a very chilly Monday night. The place was virtually empty. Service was very quick. You order after walking in, pay and pick your table. The tables were socially distant from each other with lots of empty space between them. When your food is ready, you pick it up from a window. I felt safe dining here and would visit again.

A group of us recently started a monthly activity that includes us supporting a local business or eatery. COVID has altered how we all do things and relying on each other to get through has become our priority. Unfortunately, not every business we encountered on this journey lives up to that. If you have read a few of my reviews, you would see that we have been treated horribly at some places. We stopped in at a restaurant right across the street but were turned away because it was almost closing time. A few other places in the area appeared to be a little bit to 'trendy' for our tastes.

This is certainly not the case for the UGLY DOG SALOON that was right across the street! It was near closing time on Saturday, October 24th and they treated a party of about 10 people like family. They were excited to have us and it showed. The bartender who took our order was very nice and assured us that our experience would not be 'rushed' . I believe the gentleman doing all the cooking was 'Walt'. Walt is an excellent man to have preparing the food because everyone really enjoyed their meals. Walt seem to have prepared everything with care. Great Food All Around! Friendly people, and we will for sure be going back and telling others to do the same.

The Ugly Dog Saloon appreciated our business and it showed. We sincerely appreciate that more that anything else. They were all very happy to have us a customers and treated us with kindness and gratitude the entire time we were there.

I was prepared to eat great food and drink cold beer. I had a chicken caesar salad which was not very appetising. At least the beer was cold.

This place is not far from WWll museum and it's funky and fun. You have to order food at the bar and then it will be buzzed to pick it up at the kitchen window. The food is so tasty and has a great southern style bent. Mac n cheese, baked beans, cole slaw and BBQ meats is a really satisfying and delicious. I would go back in a heart beat.

Stopped here for lunch with friends after checking out the restaurant across the street. We decided on going with a not so posh option. The smell of BBQ and a crawfish boil outside drew our attention. Walking in gives the feel of a genuine country BBQ joint with open seating and a bar where you order. You are given a puck and then pick up your food from the window of the kitchen when it goes off.
We had the loaded fries, fried pickles, Mac and cheese and smoked buffalo wings and all were excellent!
Cold draft beer and fresh brewed tea rounded out the meal.
The manager / owner was very personable and chatted with us for a bit.
Overall, an excellent choice and highly recommended.
