The place is cute, set back from the main street of charming downtown Ashland, Oregon with both indoor and outdoor seating. The brisket is good given that it is conventional beef rather than grass fed. Their baked beans are delicious with lots of meat in them. The green chili is meat-ntensive and absolutely delicious. They don't have much to offer... More

They offer a special, and at the moment I cannot recall its name. Look at the board of specials that is near the counter where one places their order. Served in a Mason Jar (just to be unique, I guess). The bottom is a layer of baked beans - home made and good ... sweet and spicy. Next are three... More

This is a very small place, and you could wait a while for a table. The brisket and sauce was good, but not as tender as I had hoped. Beans good, but really spicey. More like a chili only "thin". I really liked the mac n cheese. Big pasta and cheesy. Don't think it came from a box. No fountain... More

The food here is OK, but pricey for what you get (such as the skimpy $15 salad with shredded chicken, no sides or bread). Most of the staff is nice but the cook/owner is cranky and painfully slow. My husband and I ordered two simple items, a sandwich and a chicken salad, and waited nearly 30 minutes... on a mid-afternoon... More

Very relaxed and comfortable outdoor and indoor eating environment. The outdoor grill brings the wonderful smells of the BBQ all around you. Outdoor live music on the patio many times and the ribs and the beer are just heaven!!

Wanted to eat at a casual restaurant near our hotel and this place fit the bill. We had spent the day on the Rogue River and wanted a good beer on tap and a filling meal with out having to get "dressed up". Ordered a full rack of ribs, beef brisket and our sides were the potato salad, the mac... More

I had a full rack of ribs and it was bland, not "juicy" and was not very tender. The sides were awful, too. The potato salad was a bit weird. The mac and cheese was awful! Straight from the box mac and cheese is way even better! Ugh. Not worth my $22.

My first time her and the we had ribs and I had the Mac and cheese and potato salad. It's so good I had to like my fingers after digging into the ribs. I will definitely come back for more 😉

We ordered ribs, pulled pork, and the special brisket mac n cheese. All were excellent. Try all the different sauces and pick your favorite. Good selection of classic sodas and a board listing local beers and wines.

Thank pjbitt
