  • This Castleberry Hill spot opened late this Fall and is already a contender for some of the city's top barbecue. Go for ribs, brisket, jalapeno cornbread, and cocktails like the boiled peanut martini.
  • Love love love trying all the Vodka drinks :)
  • Try the wings and the eggs!!
  • First time having BBQ where the smoked flavor is SO good that I don't want ANY sauce on it! Pork belly and creamed corned is amazing!
  • Excellent pulled pork sandwich and the brisket melts in your mouth! Very cool atmosphere to grab a bite or a beer!
  • Brisket burrito!!! Yummmm!!
  • Small touches like Edison bulbs, barstools and chairs with a hint of steampunk, Mason jars, and bits of moonshine machinery fill out the sprawling place.
  • The fried pickles were yummy :)
  • The name implies a smoking lounge, but it is actually a pretty good barbecue joint within walking distance of the office.
  • If you're a bacon lover ask for the bacon marmalade with whatever you order. Its delicious with the mac n cheese.
  • Wow! This place is my new favorite BBQ place! You have to try the mac-n-cheese!!
  • Good start for a tasty local pub. Mini ahi taco, fried green tomato, and teriyaki infused fried ribs go well with beer.
  • Try the Show Stopper--delicious! The staff is really great as well.
  • Jordan is the chef and makes a mean pulled pork sammich!!
  • The loaded potato salad was on point! Food & service was great!
  • Everything we tried on the menu was amazing! Customer service sucked
  • Trust me, it's all good!!
  • The chicken was very dry. Not everyone eats bacon . My grandmother from south made wonderful potato salad without bacon. No diverse flavor profiles. I won't be back
  • I was extremely disappointed in the fact that I could not get potato salad or baked beans WITHOUT BACON!! Not everyone eats bacon, they were out of creamed corn.1 flavor here , Bacon
  • Go for the chicken wings as appetizers accompanied by house fried pickles. Then follow through with some ribs and order the Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes tots! Bomb! Try also the local brews
