    The frybread is really delish!!! Great cocktails too, including really strong mint juleps and Lynchburg lemonade.

    Skip the desert. It used to be a highlight but has gone down hill fast.

    My first night ever in NYC i was carried here and i discovered how an hamburger should taste like. Smoked, well-done. Whatever, take it.

    Not going to get the Mac and cheese again. It wasn't that special and it was about $7!!! Baby back ribs are delicious.

    Good brisket (as long as you order it lean). I thought the Mac and cheese was too rich/ cheesy (crazy, I know).

    For a healthy 12 dollar lunch, order a side of lean brisket and the seasonal vegetable.

    This place is a vegetarian's nightmare, but pescetarians, the fish is good -- and there's a fine jazz club downstairs.

    Apparently, they've replaced the creamed spinach with sautéed spinach for the summer months. Sniff...

    If someone else is picking up the tab, look for the Pappy Van Winkle on the whiskey menu.

    Well done BBQ! Brisket here is the specialty and the way to go. Get it marbled as I did so there I a little more fat on it. also had the rib sampler which was on point as well as the Mac & cheese.
