    Split the boar ribs to start. Brisket, pork ribs, and collards were insanely delicious, mac and cheese was some of the best I've had.

    Hands down, one of the best BBQ of my life. Amazing  spicy deviled eggs. The ribs were amazing, they fell right off the bones as we picked it up.

    The brisket was phenomenal! Love the flavor of the chicken. Get the Mac & cheese! The collard greens taste like someone's grandma made it. Everything is made in house. Nothing frozen.

    The meat portions on the combos, in my opinion, are a little small. Might want to order two or three. Also the Mac and cheese is freshly made and is amazing.

    Offers a classier bistro-style take on the ubiquitous barbecued meats, and boy does it do a good job, with wonderfully complex flavours and live music upstairs most nights Read more

    Not your typical barbecue joint. A bit too fancy and expensive to call yourself a barbecue joint. The food was good and the atmosphere is great live music upstairs.
