    Awesome concert venue and it's down the street from some pretty good bars. Drinks were a little pricey but that was to be expected, it had an awesome selection of alcohol though!

    No doubt this is one of the better locations for BBQ. Restaurant style that is. The food is well prepared, well presented, cooked perfectly and very flavourful with quite good portions

    Good desserts, the meat is just ok.

    Don't come for the BBQ - come for the music

    Jennifer Thomas · October 7, 2015

    BBQ and Music! That's near 6th st as well and tickets to shows are usually 30 bucks and it's a fun experience.

    Cam Smith · September 26, 2015
  • Dylan B.

    It's a must do. Get a bit of everything.

    The Sunday gospel brunch is worth it. $21/adult, lots of good side options other than the BBQ.

    Stubb's Gospel Brunch is a must do.

    Went for Gospel brunch and wasn't at all disappointed. The food is so rich you feel the fantastic heart attack coming on, and the mimosas are perfectly flavored and fizzy. The music is insanely good!

    Larry LaBurr · July 6, 2015

    Mac & cheese, sausage, pulled pork, onion rings, sweet potato fries are all awesome! Ribs had a little too much fat on them for my taste, but I'm not much of a meat eater. Overall, awesome dinner!

  • Zain M.

    Lives up to the hype, son. Although, don't always fall prey to the unlimited meat option, all you really need is a plate.

    Zain Mohammed · June 14, 2015
  • Jeremy C.

    It's downtown. Great shows. Get the chopped sandwich.

    Start off the meal with the fried green tomatoes, which are crisp and firm. But make sure to keep your eye on the prize and order the $17.95 all-you-can-eat family-style BBQ dinner. Read more
