BBQ and beer?! Yeah, youíre gonna leave this place full and satisfied. The selection doesnít seem to rotate too much, but theyíve found their staples and they stick to it. Friendly staff (although they do run into spurts where they can get overwhelmed from time to time), they tune into the local sports games on TV (or whatever big game might be one), and almost all nights they have a blues-based band take the tiny stage they setup in the front window. Granted, sometimes the band can be overwhelming and drown out conversation, but they do a good job of booking bands, so that can be forgiven; and they have a "back room" which is a least conversation-level ambiance. Itís a dangerous recommendation, because youíll run the risk of filling yourself up (although if you have 3+ ppl, itís not too bad) but for sure order the pulled meat nachos as an appetizer with the burnt ends as your meat - compliments and IPA beautifully! Their pulled pork is their money meat.

Great Food. Recently renovated and added a lot of seating (both indoor and outdoor) and added another side to the bar and doubled their number of taps. Much more interesting selections now!

Stopped by here when I was over at Bangers and Lace. Decent atmosphere. Smelled great, but didnít have time to eat. Beer list is local stuff, nothing special or hard to find but good list if you want to get some bbq.

Checked this place out Saturday night, blues band playing, good BBQ, smallsih selection of beers. 8 or so taps, Lagunitas Pils, Daisy Cutter, Stone IPA, and a few other, nothing that would WOW me. Some bottles as well. Not really a craft brew place but good food, music and good ambiance.

Not entirely sure why this place was added as it is absolutely not a beer destination. They have a standard selection that doesnít change. The BBQ is pretty damn good and the service as well. Still, if in the area, there are better options for beer.

I checked out this place the other night. they had a pretty good selection of both bottles and drafts. I had a Peak IPA which I had not previously seen anywhere else in the city. The BBQ is good, not great. Our service was very good. And always a plus, I think that they have live music every night. I saw some blues. It was great.
