Had a take away from here Saturday night. The place was packed but the service was still brilliant- fast, efficient and very friendly. Food was just as fab as last time- the portions are very generous, the flavours great, and the choice vast.
Can't rate this highly enough.

We've eaten at plenty of BBQ places all over the southern states of the USA and this compares very favourably, I would even go as far as to say better then many. The meat was delicious, tender, tasty and plenty of it. We had the platter for two with brisket, pulled pork, ribs and chicken. All perfectly cooked and mouthwateringly good. Nice touch serving beans and coleslaw in tin cans. I have seen a few reviews on here complaining about service but we had no issues at all, it was reasonably quick and friendly. Certainly no complaints about the food, so take the risk, as it's a new business give them the benefit of doubt and put mistakes down to teething problems. I think it's well worth a visit and good value. We had a doggy bag and dined again on the food we couldn't eat the next day for lunch!

The staff are really friendly, the portions are massive and the food is the best I've had in Aber for a long while. We've been back several times and the place never disappoints. The sauce is to die for! The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere, very cosy. Price wise, for the quantity and quality of food, it's a bargain. A very pleasant surprise; I highly recommend.

legendary food - you can take your date, go to toilet, and still there will be plenty left - that's how much food they give you ! But it is not just quantity - quality is there too - that's why they make so much of it!!!

As a student, this place is affordable, portions are generous, and the staff are great.

Price wise, it's on par with what you would expect to pay for a decent meal, but you get more than a decent meal.

How they manage to stay open given their prices and portions, are beyond me but you will not be complaining about leaving hungry!

The staff are all absolutely approachable and friendly. They're up for a conversation if the place isn't too busy and will have you both laughing.

It's rare, especially in Aberystwyth to have people in restaurants to actually care about the food. Normally you just get a bunch of apathetic students. These people care, and it shows.

Having been there several times over my stay as a student here I've had a good portion of the menu and can recommend the burgers, ribs, and pulled pork.

I'm going to miss this place when I'm no longer a student!
