Informal neighborhood spot for BBQ featured a warm, friendly staff, reasonable prices and a nice selection of sides to accompany great ribs and pulled pork. Cole slaw is good, onion rings solid. Nice place to hang out and support a hardworking staff and have a...More

We ordered the chicken and several side orders. The food was excellent and priced right. I will be going to this place again! We ordered and brought home but looked like a nice cozy place to eat!

maybe they were just having a bad day but the brisket was really bad, First, it had no seasoning at all, not even salt. Second, the "chef" cut it with the grain and not across so we got a pile of long strands of meat....More

We were only in Worcester for one night. We stayed up the road on Pleasant St. This place was a short walk down the hill. When we arrived, many folks were sitting at outside tables with their "bring your own" bottles of wine or beer....More
