    Great place for meat lovers! I felt like I was in the USA with all this delicious pulled meat (pork, beef, chicken). Delicious. Great selection of American beers on draft. Goose Island, Samuel Adams..

    I loved the pulled pork but you have to put the sauce yourself. So the final taste depends a lot on you

    The Burnt Ends here are great!! Everything else is merely ok and kind of tastes the same... Bukowskis a few doors down does much better ribs!

    American meathouse. No surprises in that respect.

    Wet burnt ends is very good! Baby back ribs too dry to my taste, and french fries could be better. Good place for some BBQ meat though!

    Tasty American style barbecue at a reasonable price. Mixed grill of pork, sausage and chicken is a winner. There's usually a fair wait unless you get there early (before 6).

    Probably overrated. The food was decent barbecue but I've had far better. Service could be improved. Would still recommend the Soho Special (pulled pork and beef brisket sandwich).

    They need real hard rolls so the sandwich doesn't fall apart. Also they should let the customer choose the sauce.

    Although the veggie choice is *very* limited, the veggie sandwich made with goats cheese is really good. Especially if used as a vehicle for delivering BBQ sauce to the mouth.

    I've tried the burnt ends from here and Pitt BBQ Co., and these are much better! Pity's are flavorful, yes, but very chewy. Here they are so tender. Give them a go, you won't be disappointed :)

    Very nice briskest and ribs. Pulled pork was ok: moist but could use some spice. They only have Bud and Samuel Adams on draught. I wish they had either the blue moon or the Sierra Nevada.
