This a regular spot my coworkers and I order lunch from. Everything they serve is very good from their BBQ sandwiches to the BBQ platters. Chicken wings are also dynamite. They are smoked not fried, so tell them to leave them on the grill for...More

We had dinner because it was an easy walk from where we were staying. That is one of the highlights. We should have been tipped off by the fact almost no one was there at 6:30 in the evening. It’s hard to screw up a...More

D is nothing fancy. But it is good. The menu is not lengthy. But it gets the job done. Best BBQ in Stamford. Our personal favorites are the wings and sweetheart deal for 2 (rack of ribs with 4 sides). Recommend.

Very good barbecue place for a casual lunch or dinner. Good selection of beer and full bar. Inside and outside tables available. Large parking lot. Service was good as well. Recommended for a casual meal with good food, cold drinks and friendly service.

Good plentiful food, but the wait to get in is l-o-n-g. the atmosphere is nice, but it is very loud. Service is good. The ribs are especially good. I go about every month. The positives outweigh the negatives.

In general, the venue worked out well and I liked that we had our own room to celebrate my stepdaughter and son-in-law's rehearsal dinner. The food was delicious, although a bit rich for me. I'm not a BBQ aficionado (being from Cali) but the flavor...More

This was a family opportunity for lunch, it came well recommended, and we can see why. I had the ribs, St. Louis style, and they were fabulous. There were all kinds of sauces they provide as condiments, but why? The ribs were great on their...More

We pride ourselves on our loyal guests, employees, and being a great place to have fun and while sampling some of the best bar-b-que in the country.

We provide full customization to ensure your party is a swinging success. We make it easy so you don't have to sweat the details. For parties large and small, we offer Pick-Up, Delivery, Drop Off with Servers, and Full Service. We ask for 48 hour notice for pick-up and delivery orders.
