    Still working out the kinks. Be patient. There is good potential here. Also, great supporters of Michigan-made beer: 10 on tap plus many more in bottles.

    If you like your BBQ sauce on the vinegar side, just add some of their Carolina sauce to any off their flavors.

    Their Brisket is on the dry side, but still full of flavor. Use some of their Carolina sauce and you are good to go.

    Half-off appetizers for a Foursquare check-in. Get the burnt ends or fried green beans. The corn bowl is life-changing, and so is the pulled pork sandwich!

    Was hoping it would have been better. Slow service (esp since everything is already made), BBQ was cold or luke warm. Meh. Liked the pickles, onions, and carrots. Perhaps another try in a few....

    Brisket was tough/dry, mac n cheese was bland, pop was flat. I heard a tale that they're serving old (but not spoiled) food that was cooked for AB&E, expecting big crowds, but it flopped.
