Read the reviews, heard about it being on DDD. Does not disappoint. I too had the 'Pigs and Grits', if you are hungry it will satisfy you, if not you can always get something from their bakery. Grits were nice a creamy as everyone indicates. We also spent half an hour or more just looking around their shop. So much... More

Great atmosphere and incredible BBQ and sides. Staff was so friendly and also knowledgeable about my gluten free diet and had several options for me. So many sauces to choose from!

Had the Tom Thumb's breakfast stack with juicy brisket, best ever hash brown with chipolte aioli, eggs and toast. This was a taste sensation of the highest magnitude. I would be a regular here except that I live over 2000 miles away.

Hi Yakyu, Great choice on the brisket stack - a true fan favorite. Bummer you live 2000 miles away. Well - tell a friend about us, and we'll look for you next time you're in AZ! Safe travels. Mike. More

Yummy, yummy BBQ! Ate it at a wedding reception. Tried the pulled pork, chicken and brisket with 3 BBQ sauces (Kansas City, Hickory & Habanero), rolls, coleslaw, salad, and cowboy beans. All were scrumptious! Caterers, were a little late, but called to say they were a bit delayed. Very professional and pleasant. Would definitely have them again.

Hi Jane, Wow - thank you for the positive and well-detailed review! Seeing "yummy" and "scrumptious" means the world to us. Keep us in mind for your next event, and I'll make sure the caterers are more timely in the future. See you soon. Mike. More

Went partly based on DDD review, but came back because the food was so good. I had the breakfast taco with eggs, cheese, potatoes, and brisket in a flour tortilla (2 per order).

I didn't know much about this place, but my friend saw it on DDD and wanted to check it out. We all ordered something different for lunch. I ordered the turkey club. It was good, nothing amazing.
