Stopped in before the zoo Christmas light show. Ordered the ultimate BBQ platter. Amazing, and the service was even better. Lauren was super attentive and made sure everything was perfect.

Favorite is the shortys chopped bbq chicken salad. Good place for families, I wouldn’t say huge parties though because it is not that large. Service is very fast, attentive servers, and good take out always correct and on time.

We are from out of town and hope to visit again soon. We really enjoyed the beef brisket - tender and juicy. My husband didn't care for the corn muffins because they were sweet but I loved them.

There isn't a lot of authentic BBQ where I'm from, at least none that truly hits the mark and leaves a lasting impression. So when I was in the Toledo area on business, my boss and I decided to stop for dinner and I am...More
