    Delicious food without the ridiculous wait of the original Slow's restaurant. There are a few places to sit, but come prepared to grab your food and go since it's not really built for in-house dining.

    Pulled pork bbq, waffles fries, and MACARONI AND CHEESE! You'll be scraping every last bite out of the pan. 😋🍴

    Chicken wings were awesome. Mustard sauce and spicy are my favorites. The blackeyed peas could use some dill: they don't hold a candle to baker's. Channel 4 van was parked there too.

    The greatest. Among other things, when you call in your order, they wait until you get there to make the fries, so they're nice and crispy

    Incredible barbecue. Lives up to its hype 😃. The baby back ribs and the brisket were "off the charts".

    This place is awesome. One of the hipsters that works here was very polite. I ate ribs and everything.

    Baby Back Ribs, Wings, Mac and Cheese, sweet potatoes, side salad and fries with cheese are the office favorites

    I think food here is better than the restaurant. You always get your food hot and not a long wait either. Also, seating available. Win, win, win!

    I always count these places out because I'm a vegetarian, but The Genius with the Mac and Cheese I had made me cry tears of joy.

    On the move or have to eat lunch at the office. Call and order pick up. Yardbird or The Reason with a side of mac-n-cheese.

    Service is not up to par, was rushed out the store pretty much and I received the wrong sides. Don't get the pulled pork, it's bad. There are better barbecue joints out there

    Give them an extra 15-20 minutes for online orders. Almost always takes longer than the website says.

    The beef chili was horrible. It was unusually greasy and tasted like dog food. Very disappointing. The waffle fries and cheese was excellent though.
