Foursquare Tips

  • Easily the best BBQ in the city.
  • Get the barbecue.
  • Get the grits, bring your own beer and sit outside.
  • I could live exclusively off the jalapeo cheddar grits
  • This is what you need: Pulled Pork Sandwich, slaw is up to you. Mac and Cheese + Jalepeo Cornbread. Bring someone else so you can mooch off their Jalepeo Cheddar Grits. Wash down with cold Crush.
  • Pulled pork, ribs, jalapeo cornbread, mac, and their BBQ sauce is great.
  • BYOB & be sure to go hungry & bring cash. I like the pork sandwich. We've been 2 times for lunch and have gotten carryout for another meal both times.
  • Excellent! Cash only - hit an ATM on the way.
  • Bring your appetite, everything here is good.
  • Wow, some of the best pulled pork I've ever had. Ribs are good too, but pork is tops! Also grits and cornbread are amazing.
  • Being able to bring my own beer and drink as much as I want while eating the best bbq pork in the city, and being outside listening to live music... all that makes this my fave place to go!
  • Get your side "dirty" which is added pork shavings. $1 extra. Worth it.
  • It's cash only and bring lots of it because you will try to order everything off the menu because it's that wonderfully delicious.
  • They have picnic tables set up outside under a tent with fans so its a very casual restaurant. Food is excellent.
  • Cash only! BYOB! Pulled pork sandwich , corn bread, and Mac and cheese is a must!
  • Best BBQ in the city- it's byob and bands outside-- summer perfection
  • Heckle the cooks in the kitchen for free griddle scraps.
  • Came (from the Albany area of NY) for dinner on the recommendation of a Cincinnati resident...and absolutely LOVED the food! Turkey melts in your mouth & the mashed potatoes & baked beans are DELISH!
  • Oh man, the pork rocks and so do the sides! Baked sweet potato would be an excellent complement to their spicy beans, grits or cornbread!
  • The ribs are so good you will want to eat them like a lollipop.
