    No matter what you get from here, you won't be disappointed. Everything on their menu is delicious. Get the chicken gyro sandwich- you won't regret it and it's affordable.

    If you're looking for REAL BBQ... Then look elsewhere. I came here based on good reviews on Yelp, but left very disappointed. Beef brisket should be smoked, not roasted then slap BBQ sauce on it.

    This place exceeded my expectations! The pulled pork sandwich was amazing. Not a bad price for all that food. I highly recommend this place :)

    Skip the fries. Get the Greek potatoes instead.

    Ribs, rib tips, and other related carnivorous fare are solid. 50 cents extra for a shot glass size of BBQ sauce and other side/extra items are not only exorbitant, but unfulfilling.

    Good ribs and baked beans. Everything else average or below average, including the bread (caked with butter).

    They charge 29 cents for cups of water. Seriously? :(

    All the BBQ stuff is amazing, but I just ordered their chicken Caesar wrap w/the dressing on the side & it was so fresh & crisp that it tasted good even WITHOUT the dressing!

    Two more important words: grecian chicken. All dark meat. Grecian potatoes. Baked beans.

    This is some damn good BBQ. The only problem is trying to decipher the mumbled code the kitchen uses when they call out that your order is ready.
