This is a good restaurant and not fancy at all. Easy place to relax and have a couple of beers with lots of meat. It delivers what it promises. Lots of good smoked meat, not gourmet food but good food nonetheless. Very generous portions.

Stick to your ribs food, good size portions, lots to pick from. Had great service and not so great service. It's a fun place to eat with friends but can get a little noisey. Live blues on Friday night, good music.

You'll be addicted, so beware lol. Amazing meats, house smoked, great value. Ribs are a must try! Only negative is the price of beer. Go with confidence

3 of us all enjoyed lunch today. The shrimp Po Boy, Ribs and Nashville chicken were all so good as well as the salad with raspberry vinaigrette. I hope to return on my next trip to Kitchener. Thanks for the great service Steve.

They do serve deserts but we found that we were packing part of our main meal "to go", so had no room for desert.

The only vegetarian things are appetizers, like fries nachos and a salad. A BBQ place is not the wisest choice.
