    Blown away by this! Didn't quite know what to expect had my share of good BBQ. Wow it works amazingly! Great Smokin' BBQ Platter & Jalapeno cornbread. Great wines by 2 &5oz Friendly knowledgable staff

    I've always loved food here. Ribs come off the bone the moment you make the first bite and then the meat just melts in your mouth. Not the last time - the meat was chewy and rubbery. Had to return
  • Zach S.
    The pork was fantastic and ribs had some of the best texture I've tried. Pimento cheese also excellent. Service was spotty in afternoon.

    The beer can chicken is a must, but if you think is too much you can order the pulled beer can chicken sandwich, it's yummie. The banana pudding cake is delicious!!!

    Try the signature plate with ribs, beef biskets, coleslaw and pulled pork. Sure you won't leave hungry even in two!

    Andrew the bartender was knowledgable and friendly. Atmosphere was lively and the bar was hopping. We didn't order food but it smelled delicious and looked great. The wine selection unbeatable. :)

    Good BBQ for being in the west. Great service and atmosphere. Ribs are the way to go!
  • Anna K.
    Most delicious beef ribs I have ever tried paired with excellent wine (King's something). On the pic is a mix of everything.

    This downtown spot is perfect for lunch, happy hour or late night! Pop in for some BBQ and a flight of wine... You won't regret it!

    One of the best wine bars in wine country, it’s also home to “killer BBQ”. Not to be missed is the Beer Can Chicken, the house specialty.

    Try the Poetic Justice Cab with the ribs. They are both spectacular. Oh, and buy the Streamside Pinot Grigio by the case before they run out. It's a must have for the summer. Yes. Buy a CASE. :)

    Buy retail, not from the restaurant menu, to avoid paying a service premium. If you buy retail something you've tasted, you'll save 10% at checkout. 🍷
