I wish I was back in Birmingham just to eat at this restaurant. The best BBQ ever! Order the sampler platter with a side of cheesy grits. Clean, fast and super friendly staff. You MUST eat here.

Get the smoked wings, you will not be disappointed. They are meaty, perfectly spiced, and the white bbq sauce is just the right addition. The cheesy grits are also very good.

Bbq is very good but you sit outside with the flies and the heat. Staff seemed to have attitudes. Floor so sticky I'm surprised we could leave. In a crazy part of town. Food was really good but pricey.
