Went to the restaurant on the advice of a local and found it to be a spacious place though loud. As the place is popular I was ready to wait a while which we did. Found the selection of meats, styles and sauces to be expansive. I like that they did not drown the ribs in sauce. The brisket had a good smokey flavor that I like in brisket. The portion size is a good value for the price. They have a expansive list of local beers to go along with a staff who seem to know the brews. Service was friendly and fast even with the large number of people who were there. The pickles which came with my wife's meal were incredible. They tasted a little different and had spicy kick to them which was really good. The choice of deserts capped off the meal really nice.

We had an amazing BBQ meal here. It is very popular with the locals and you need to be patient on waiting to get a table but it is well worth the wait.

First of all go early but this is a must when in Syracuse. Karleigh was an awesome waitress. We had wings and ribs and chicken. Coleslaw was good, not peanuts in it, but we did have good cornbread. It is a little noisy if you are there in the evening but all worth it. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

This was recommended to us by our Desk Clerk & it was a good choice. We were there prior to prime dinner time so we were seated right away. Parking is a problem, there is a lot near, but we ended up finding one in front, no free parking though. We were greeted by a very nice server & she knew the menu very well. I was given a side I did not order & she realized it right away & brought me what I ordered, I also still had the incorrect item so had plenty of food. Even though, in the north, they had collard greens. I had the beef sandwich & my husband had the pork. Their is a little kick in the food, but not unbearably hot & spicy. Enjoyed it, would go back if in town & recommend it to all.
