  • No better place to go for barbecue in Ballard than this hot spot. Don't skip out on the sides, especially the pulled-pork nachos and Buffalo chicken livers. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Watch out for the Dalek behind the bar!
  • Get the house-made fireball whiskey. (Fire extinguisher not required.)
  • Braised beef sandwich was one of the best things I have tasted in my life.
  • Texas Style BBQ, Pulled Pork Sandwich is awesome :) Get drinks at the Gerald on the other side of the road.
  • Ugh. Still searching for bbq. Key is to perfect cooking one animal and one sauce. With no more than 3 side options.
  • After living in NC and GA, this place makes me sad. Not good.
  • The brisket is amazing and by far the best in Seattle. They use a naval cut.
  • The mac and cheese is enormous. Enough for 2 to share and still be full. Also, the corn bread is burnt and not worth the $$.
  • Befriend Trevor at the bar!
  • The cornbread with honey butter is $2 at happy hour and basically crack in bread form. Get two.
  • Cowboy Killer is a LOT. Enough for two, or maybe three.
  • Collard greens! Collard greens collard greens collard greens!
  • Food Network - Best Ribs in WA: baby back ribs are hot item - dry-rub ribs w/brwn sugar rub & cooked on WA wood (an Old Hickory pit). Ribs finish on charbroiler w/apple cider vinegar house sweet sauce
  • This is absolutely the best place in Seattle to have BBQ and Whiskey. Try the pickled deviled eggs too.
  • Mac and cheese. BBQ sandwich
  • Good drinks and solid BBQ.
  • Wonderful bbq place... go for the bbq nachos and pulled pork sandwich. By the way between 3 and 5 there is a happy hour menu with cheaper and great options!!!
  • Head to the back bar. Prepare to meet the meat. Brisket, collard greens and cornbread all good.
  • Pulled pork was great! Also the cornbread
