"Food is good but they are so stingy with the French Fries."
"The sauces all bring something different to the table."
"The potatoes were quite good, but at $15.99, one would expect a larger helping."

We decided to try this place based on their 4.0 rating. The restaurant was empty at 5:30 on a Friday, but that is understandable. The man at the counter was very helpful. I ordered the Brisket Dinner at $15.99 and it only took about ten minutes to arrive. The portions were very small for the price. My sides consisted of the garlic mashed potatoes and another of beans. These were served in a small, maybe 1/3 cup container. That's pretty small. The potatoes were quite good, but at $15.99, one would expect a larger helping. The brisket was wonderful and very tender. They served six slices which seemed okay for the price, but given the small side portions, I felt that the meal should hover around the $10.00 mark. The meal came with a nice sized portion of cornbread that had a slight hint of lemon. Wow, what a great addition to the mix. My side had the pulled pork sliders and contrary to the other reviews was provided a reasonable portion. Interestingly, we were unable to locate any salt or pepper shakers anywhere. I gave this three-stars because of the balance between price and small side portions and the expectation that you bus your own table. The quality of the food is high and I'd like to return to try their wings.

Been to many eateries including Bears smokehouse - this is no bears - quantity of food is not worth the price- quality of food was ok.

Service was good. Food was fantastic. I had the burnt tip sandwich and some wings. The wings were good and crispy. The sauces were good too. Keep up the good work.

Eat here a few times a month. I've sampled just about everything on the menu. BBQ veterans will appreciate the burnt ends. The sauces all bring something different to the table. Owner is a riot, real funny guy if you ever get to meet him.

To all the people complaining about fries, it clearly says on the menu, sandwhich comes with half order of fries, don't expect to get a heaping order, this is not McDonald's. Bbq is an expensive food to produce, you try it and see how far you get. Great food great service.

Food is good but they are so stingy with the French Fries. Come on you guys. I personally won't be back just because of that. Fries are so cheap and so are they for giving such a skimpy portion.
