Description: Hanks * A Restaurant. We think that says it all. Yeah we use mostly local, free run, hormone free, happy things. More importantly we use big flavors on them to create different things. The menu changes drastically week to week. We're open late, sometimes it's loud, sometimes it 's not. We have a wicked beer, wine and cocktail selection. We don't have a lot of seats. Also the phone doesn't work and we tend to not check messages so please don't be offended. Come say hi please.

“Fabulous BBQ”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

I didn't expect to find such good food here. It doesn't look that spectacular from the outside, but once you step inside it has a certain charm. The open kitchen, the hand-written menu, everything comes together. The pulled pork platter was great. With pulled pork you know what you're getting, here you get that and more. Definitely makes its name proud.

“Unique and delicious”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

Went there for the first time today and had the best pulled pork I've ever had. Not the usual BBQ saucey stuff. It was different with just the right amount of kick. Had a very good side of potato salad with a nice lemon flavour. Friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. I'll definitely go back.
