    No better place to go for barbecue in Ballard than this hot spot. Don't skip out on the sides, especially the pulled-pork nachos and Buffalo chicken livers. [Eater 38 Member]

    Texas Style BBQ, Pulled Pork Sandwich is awesome :) Get drinks at the Gerald on the other side of the road.

    Ugh. Still searching for bbq. Key is to perfect cooking one animal and one sauce. With no more than 3 side options.

    The mac and cheese is enormous. Enough for 2 to share and still be full. Also, the corn bread is burnt and not worth the $$.

    Did not live up to all the hype I read in Seattle Magazine. Cocktails are original & tasty but the fare left much to be desired, especially for the price. Pete's in Fremont is consistently better.

    6 weeks old, this place has already worked out any kinks. Try sneaking a bottle of the sweet bbq sauce into your purse. You know, to put pour onto things at home (meatloaf, chicken, cereal....)? Mmmm.
