  • the corn mash/bake is the best!
  • Just love their brisket!
  • Delicious, desireable, authentic, saucy barbeque worth driving long distances for pulled pork and brisket and SWEET POTATO SOUFFLE; Entertaining and Interactive follow on the twitters @RealUrbanBBQ
  • When they offer BBQ sauce as they are serving your food, say, "No, thank you", and try the sauces available on each table.
  • Be prepared to wait...but it's worth it
  • Had the burnt ends sandwich and it was simply delish!
  • Brisket: Yum. Spinach: Yum. Mashed potatoes: Yum. Cole Slaw: meh.
  • Their food is delicious. Finally someone around here can enhance the taste of the food with smoke instead of drowning it in smoke. I thought we would never find a place like this in this area.
  • Great BBQ place, love the sliced brisket. Ribs are good too!
  • Everything is good here!
  • BURNT ENDS! That's all you need to know...
  • Burnt ends are the bomb.
  • Sweet potato souffl is awesome
  • Mix the sauce - hot and mild, delish! Loved the pulled chicken sandwich and baked beans!
  • Burnt ends, cornbread, and lemon shake up! If never been here, try the mini sandwiches so you can find your favorite! Keep the mason jar for free drinks when you come back!
  • I'm a big dude. I ordered the two meat combo. Got the burnt ends and the ribs. It comes with two single serving sides. All for $15. meat was delicious. Recommend the corn bread side.
  • Finally figured out how to order: get mini sandwiches so you don't leave stuffed and your bill is < $10
  • Las costillas a otro nivel!! Los Mac & Cheese sper ricos, el pollo y las papas majadas . 9/10
  • Love it but pricey.
  • Memphis Rub!
