    Much better BBQ than you would expect for times square. If there are 2 of you, get two combos to share - brisket, pulled chicken pulled pork and the trash ribs. You won't leave hungry

    La carne en general es deliciosa, el pollo carolina y las cotillas sin palabras, excelsas. Las alas de pollo no van fritas, sino al carbón, lo cual da un sabor excelente!

    Brisket came out cold. Sent back and they microwaved the entire plate, even biscuit. Even funnier the guy tried to be smart and tell me that's how brisket is. Not in Texas buddy!

    Don't go there when it's crowded, you'll feel like cattle being forced fed and "kindly" hurried to finish your plate so that other cattle can take your place in the stable.

    I took the advice of trip advisor reviews and didn't order an entree by myself. I got the trash rubs appetizer and it was a perfect size. Good happy hour deals too.
