Ok, and you are not expecting to eat a healthy meal when you go to a BBQ place in the Carolinas. But, as the waistlines of the population continue to grow, it would be great if restaurants could serve something healthy on the menu. Smoked chicken breast would be great but organic chicken. Vegetables were cooked way too much and... More

I ordered in & requested extra Brisket. When the food arrived I was very upset trying to feed 4 boys. I did take pictures & emailed my frustrations to the restaurant including my phone #. No one ever replied, dead silence. If it was my company I would have taken some action. Will never order or give them my business... More

Great time with good friends. Pork and chicken always smoked to perfection. The sides are great. The mac-n-cheese is my favorite! Great for bulk carry out too.

Major disappointment. I was in town for a football game with some friends. We were a party of 10. First upon calling to see if they could accommodate us at 2pm, we were told they don't take reservations and it would be doubtful. This turned out to be overly optimistic of their business. We had someone in the group arrive... More

Some of the best pulled pork in Charlotte. Their mac and cheese and coleslaw pass the test, & their bacon wrapped jalapeños are great. Don't skip the banana pudding; it's a must have!

Ordered the ribs ans chicken and was not disappointed. Well served. The beans and BBQ sauce were excellent and the highlight for me. Good amount of meat on ribs. Skip the banana pudding as it is mostly just cook whip.

The barbecue was wonderful. The collard greens were perfect and the bourbon 🥃 selection was extensive. (The one I enjoyed was sublime). The wait staff was friendly and helpful. By the way, dessert was decadent. It made for wonderful evening in a new town.

We eat here regularly. They do everything well. Meats, veggies, etc. So called BBQ restaurants are popping up all over that are formula and pre-fab. This is real food.

Enjoyable experience with excellent BBQ and sides. Service was friendly and prompt. Setting was unique and slightly playful. Neighborhood is refreshingly different from suburban Charlotte -- more Bohemian.

Thank Susan A
