Good food. Plenty to eat and cold beer to wash it down. Nice selection of meats to try and would go back again. Can be busy and crowded but that's what happens when you serve good food.

Came in later in the evening, but got a huge burger, homemade basket of potato chips to share (came free to the table), and a large plate of nachos for my wife, and two diet Cokes (which were Gigantic and refillable!). It was delicious! Also they had a huge sports projected screen with football on, as well as 5-6 other... More

To be honest I'm not sure what we expected but the experience fell a little short. The place was absolutely dead on a Saturday afternoon- it was the two of us and the hostess/waitress/bartender, which was a little odd. Ordered a grilled chicken breast which came with fries and corn bread- all three were quite good, as was the bbq... More

Keep on driving . . . do not stop, do not pass "go!" It looked interesting with nice smoker pits outside and a reasonably attractive storefront appeal. Sat at the bar at 6:30 on a Thursday night. The place was empty - should have been a tip-off. Two very loud over-beered customers were a total turn-off - but, hey, I... More

I just love ribs and I'm still looking for great ones here in Northeast California and Nevada. I ordered baby back pork ribs with dried rub with sauce on the side and would rate the ribs "good." The membrane was not removed, a necessary step for even smoking and tenderness in my opinion, which proved true in this case as... More

Absolutely a horrible experience. An empty restaurant/bar on a Friday at 6 should have been a tip-off but I wanted to give it a shot. Two drunks down at the end of the bar needed muzzles and the bartender was nowhere to be seen to tone it down a touch. The bar server was "very busy" (I don't know with... More

In a town full of steakhouses and BBQ places this little find is a true gem. We rode past this place several times during our stay in Reno and I always smelled it before I saw it. They have a catchy name and logo too, which I appreciate even though it has no bearing on the food. The restaurant/sports bar... More

Fresh, delicious and very tasty! The portions were so large our son had leftovers for days! I have never seen such an enormous stack of hot, crispy fries. The chicken was amazing, too!

The wife and I were out looking for a new spot to eat and we came across this nice place. It's open and roomy with a sports bar look. Great BBQ and service at a reasonable price.

Have eaten here several times and their BBQ ribs are ti die for. Chicken, pork or beef all are good. They also have a pretty good selection of sides and if you order nachos be careful they are a meal in them self. Wait staff has always been friendly and they have a great selection of beers
