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

    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

    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.

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

    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!

    For a place with such an obvious hard-on for meat, such excellent veg options are a great surprise (ex: the Genius on Texas toast)

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