“What a great suprise”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

What a great surprise to find an awesome barbecue place in downtown Indy. Traveling for work an coworker brought me there for lunch, well it was so good I ate there for dinner three nights! Everything was wonderful, the mild sauce was pretty good and the spicy sauce had a great kick! Next time I am in Indy, I will be back!

“Great barbeque; friendly service”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Everything is good but go for the brisket; it is really good. The seasonal sweet potato side was to die for. Great barbeque with great beer choices.

“Great meal great people”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

The ribs, brisket, pulled pork, rib tips are all great. This is not a fancy place but food is great and the wait staff is super. All are friendly and know the menu well. W 6 of us ate there one night and ordered to go two nights later. The food was super both times.

“Update”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

I felt compelled to add to my previous review. Jason K took the time to respond to my comments and explained that their heating system went out that day and combined with the probably -20 deg. F windchill outside (true), it was cold that day, but was a one off situation.
