I have eaten at this restaurant here in NYC and had always heard that the original was upstate. On this trip, I was so excited to eat here and it didn't disappoint. As always, I love their fried green tomatoes, extensive beer list and cocktails. It was a nice touch to see a live band there as well.

I can't resist going into any good-smelling mouth-watering BBQ place if I ever drive by any. But to be honest, I have not found anywhere up and down the east coast that beats this little place in town.

This is an awsome place to come for a cold beer on a warm evening. The selections of BBQ are tremendous as well as the flavor. This location is the original location of this growing chain. If you ride a bike (Harley) not (Schwinn). It's the place to go. There is always a spot for your bike.
