Did a family takeout as we were staying very close by. Our meal consisted of ribs and sliders and corn bread. Meat was tender, sauces were tasted as was the bread. Plenty of food for 4 adults! We will be eating there again.

Consider myself an expert on southern barbecue. This place is great. Baby back ribs were not the most tender I've ever had, but flavor was incredible. Wife had sliders with chicken, pork and brisket. Pork was as good as have had.

Tried a poutine with a Canadian beer and wings... really enjoyed it! The atmosphere is worth it, especially during a hockey game!

We visited as a group for lunch. Lovely staff. Restaurant motif is like an backyard BBQ. Ordered the family combo. Certain items better than others. Ribs were great. Sandwiches, salad and beans were OK. Ribblits were a bit dry and chewy. Chicken wings were good....More
