Their burnt ends are actually BURNT....unlike other BBQ places that have ends that are just chunks of meat. They seem to melt like marshmallows in your mouth when you eat them.

Simple nothing fancy BBQ joint. If you like small quaint places to eat then this is the Place for you. It is a converted garage with concrete floors. If you want fancy you will be disappointed.

Every single item we've ever tried has been amazing. Never ever had a bad visit or item!! My kids love this place and it's only a couple blocks from our house. Their brisket and pulled pork are our favorites. Their staff is friendly, attentive and always take great care of their customers. They also have expanded parking, live music on... More

We were staying in town for the Steelers/Chiefs game. What a fun place. Owners were so friendly. Truly the best burnt ends my husband has ever had. All the food was great. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the fun running between customers regarding the upcoming game. Highly recommend!
