I was not impressed with the food and it was over priced. The customer serves was good, but our table was broke and the chairs sucked. The waitress did try and fix the table the best he could. I could have went to cookout a block down the road and get the same BBQ plate for 1/3 of the price. Not a place I would go to again.

Not impressed. AFTER Mr. Mitchell left, the original BBQ Master, this place went down hill, fast! I would not recommend.

The chopped pork BBQ here is the worst I have ever had ANYWHERE. A very nice looking place and perhaps other entrees are really good but the pulled/chopped BBQ you need to steer clear of. Their claim to fame is a pit master made famous by the media and their marketing is stellar attracting young professionals. He must not have been working the day I went there because it was terrible. Completely flavorless. Chain BBQ restarants like Smithfield's has much better Q than this place. BBQ is but a ti

I rated a 3 because as of late, the chopped has been a bit dry, and overkill with the black pepper. However, the ribs (both Carolina and baby back) and the bristket with what they call their western sauce... those are still awesome!
