    Pork Sandwich is huge and tasty. It is very tender meat and not very fatty like some places. The sauce is a little peppery for a very very slight heat but the sweetness is definitely there. Super good

    Pork plate with banana pudding and cole slaw. I had ordered the Mac and cheese, but the food runner heard I was out of town and brought me a little slaw. It was awesome.

    Good, can't-go-wrong barbecue. Pretty quick service too. Got stuck here in a super heavy downpour, so we indulged in several rounds of drinks. Try the pulled pork, the fried pickles and the ribs.

    I had the brisket tacos and they were the best I've ever had!! The baked beans were awesome!! The atmosphere is laid back and relaxing. Will definitely be going back there over and over again!!

    I'm from Syracuse, NY where not much can beat Dinosaur BBQ... this place would sure give them a run for their money. My dad said he'd drive the 14 hours just for the banana pudding!

    Was my favorite BBQ spot in Nashville. Waited in line for 45 minutes but was worth it for the brisket, banana pudding, and baked beans. Warm atmosphere with lights adorning the wood-paneled inside.

    Brisket was out when I went for dinner. Instead, we got platters of ribs, pulled pork, and chicken (ranked in preference order). Underwhelmed by all 3. Think I need to try the sandwiches...

    Close your eyes & point to something on the menu, and you'll love it! Great employees here. Brisket tacos are my favorite! It's always nice enjoying a few beers on the patio.

    The pulled pork sandwich is fantastic! The bun is buttery and toasted and reminds me of Chickfila's! Potato salad is delish!

    Finally found good BBQ in Nashville. Located in the nicest area too. Get the brisket or pork platter with mac & cheese. Slaw is good too... made without mayo.

    The barbecue nachos are top notch (made on homemade potato chips!) and there’s a special hot chicken sandwich served only on Mondays that I urge you to try. Read more

    The Tuck Special is the stuff dreams are made of -> brisket, house made spicy pimento cheese, over easy egg, and red and white sauce all on one sandwich!

    I had the special which was a pork sandwich topped with peaches. It was awesome. My husband had a rack of ribs & thought they were great. We will definitely go back.

    The kitchen was slammed on a Sunday night, mark of a good place to eat. Pulled pork was decent and the BBQ sauce was great!

    Tasty BBQ - order your food at the counter and waitress brings it to you. Great outdoor, dog friendly patio. Oh and banana pudding is a side choice!

    I got the hot chicken with sides, and fried pickles, and I hate to say it was just ok. The fried pickles were a bit saltier than I'm used to. The grits casserole was good. Trivia night is fun.

    First trip here, got the combo platter and had a little bit of everything. Brisket was amazing, so was the BBQ and chicken. A must do in Music City.

    The brisket is delicious! But they only serve it at lunch (until they run out), so you have to get there early.

    Outrageously good BBQ, better than its counterpart in East Nashville. The ribs are fantastic, as is the brisket chili when they have it.
