Went for dinner and the food was fantastic. They have live music sometimes and the smell of the place makes your mouth water even before you are sitting. Its hard to make a choice on what to order...it all looks so good

We stopped in last night for dinner, the place has a great noisy, casual ambience. The beer was good and the ribs were excellent. True Smokey barbecue. The Mac and cheese was unfortunately served cold, the grated cheese on top didn’t even start to melt,...More

I stumbled on this place by accident and it's now my favorite spot in Toronto. The food is the best place to start because it's proper barbecue. The smoked meats in particular are delicious (I believe everything is smoked on site) and the sides compliment...More
