    The the chef’s choice barbecue sampler is a great way to taste just about everything. The ribs, the caesar salad, and the succotash were the standouts.

    Everything here is smoked; even the cocktails. If you’ve got kids, go on a Sunday for Family Night, where mounds of barbecue and a selection of fries and veg are served family style. [Eater 38 Member]

    Amazing food and stroller parking. If you are travelling with your family, stop here and experience mouthwatering BBQ. Kids menus are available and they’ll be entertained with Play-Doh and crayons.

    They used to have a beef rib here that rocked the house. Everything is good though smoked wings, brisket, literally all the sides. Favorite barbecue in North America.

    My fav BBQ spot in the city. Please try the wings with dry rub!! The best ever. Ask to try the white BBQ sauce on the side.

    Brunch, when drinking before noon is socially acceptable! The bloody caesar with a ring of bacon bits... It is to die for! Come early, no reservation, first come first served! Worth the wait!!

    Best thing to do is order the BBQ platter and some sides. The platter is good for two. If you like dry rub wings get the barbecue wings, the Cuban corn is also great. Have the beignets for dessert

    The duck/chèvre/blueberry pancakes are unreal. Great spot with amazing food and friendly staff.

    The best BBQ in the city, bar none. Secret: like it REALLY hot? Ask for the chef's homemade hot sauce...they don't advertise it (chef's orders!) because the meat's already sauced perfectly.

    Ribs excellent! However, they could hold back on the salt for the side dishes (fries and kale sauté)

    The platter for two is awesome. And is a challenge for anyone willing to finish it by themselves. Ask for robin, she is most glorious indeed.

    I've been here a few times and every time has been lovely, although I find I've eaten a bit too much to walk home swiftly.

    Um, incredible. Obviously share the sampler and be sure to take home some bbq mustard. I mean, I don't really need to tell you that.

    Smoked chicken wings, spare ribs, "competition style" chicken thighs (injected with brine), pork ribs -- you get the picture. Definitely worth a look this weekend. Read more

    Ribs with the lemon pepper rub is killer. Also, the wings with the combination rub is yum.

    Everything is good. But you might as well eat the best chicken wings on earth while you're here.

    Beef brisket was a bit too greasy. Had the Smoker's choice. I liked the dry rub wings. I think it was the purple slaw that made me sick.

    The wings were good. I found the Brisket and ribs OK. But I'm from Texas and have high standards for BBQ.

    Went for brunch. Was good - however everything (there was 5 of us) tasted the same (same seasoning). The brisket sandwich was delish.

    Ok. I love the food but I'm seriously tired if being turned away for random special events. You guys should figure out how to account for locals. Super disappointing.
