“Money went up in smoke”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

This place is a waste of money. My bbq was floating in water the sauce well lets just say it sucked. The potato salad tasted like it came from walmart. The only thing good about this place besides the exit was the corn fritters. What ever you do don't waste your rimmed or money here.

“Inconsistent food, fun country bar.”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

The food can be good, but more often than not, it's inconsistent and marginal. Fatty meat, dry ribs, greasy meal. The bar though, usually has good entertainment. It's small, smoky and loud, but used to be the place to go in Keller.

“Nothing remarkable here.”
Reviewed 16 February 2013 via mobile

The BBQ was just "OK." The bar area is very smokey and they just have a small non-smoking area. The service was also average and not friendly at all.

“Medocre BBQ with the Atmosphere of a Biker Bar.”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

I have been here three times since moving to the Keller area, and each time the quality of the food declined. The ribs are usually the best bet for something decent, but the brisket and pulled pork are always dry. We got the turkey once and it was surprisingly good. All of the sides are below average, which is usually something I forgive if the BBQ excels.

The service was always pleasant, and the atmosphere was maybe a little too trashy, (even for a bbq place) but the food is my main problem with it.

“Great BQ n Atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

Can't go wrong with the BQ here, and atmosphere is comfy but the band in the very small bar area is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy to loud for such as small place, and ruins any attempt at conversation. So I'd say lower the sound, or get rid of the band and do a juke box.
