    The burnt ends, the chicken sandwich, and the Texas burger are all amazing!
  • Steve C.
    Food was awesome. We had Burnt Ends and pulled pork sandwich and The Flight which is a sampling all of their Sauces. That was worth the $2.50 extra to taste them and find out which in you like best

    Excellent stuff! Everything is delicious... Order some smoked almonds while you decide on the mains etc. They could really do with some equally delightful deserts. One or two.
