Visiting Austin for work, my colleagues thought this would be a good choice for their northern friend. Boy, were they right! Great menu selections but not overwhelming - clearly the focus is on great meats. Between us, we had pork ribs, sausage, turkey and brisket...which...More

I know, we all have different opinions when it comes to BBQ. I must say this was a great choice for us. Everyone found something on the menu. The staff was great, very attentive and patient as navigated through the menu.

But that's about it. Not bad but not great. Hoping for better. Portions could have been larger maybe or a bit better quality for cost. Sorry cant really pin it down. Wasn't bad- just not great. Did like their sauce.
