    Ask what their "special burger" is if you find yourself here on a Monday night. (off-menu burger that changes weekly; some pretty inspired creations!)

    Skip the pulled pork & brisket--both dry & have no smoked flavor at all. The pastrami has good flavor but is tough and chewy--Katz's or Carnegie do way better. The Ribs & Burnt Ends r where its at!

    Ribs are excellent, burnt ends are excellent. They do it right. Second fave after Fette Sau.

    Oh, and they don't add sauce to the bread prior, which makes it taste dry.

    Good if you're from a state whose BBQ is pork-centric. Bread choices are awkward! Rye? With Pork BBQ? Enough said! They need Poppyseed long bun, none of this East Coast crap bread!

    This is the most unorganized place ive ever been to. The wait staff completely ignore you until you get up to leave then they chase you out and offer nothing but excuses. Stay away!
