I had read some good reviews about this place and we were definitely not disappointed. There was a table of 10 of us altogether and the waitress was super fun and nothing was a problem to her.

The food was great - v. tasty. We definitely weren't left hungry afterwards! I got the Brisket with a side of coleslaw and a side of mac n cheese which were both great. The Brisket was slow cooked and smoked for 20 hours, enough said!

Great atmosphere in the place. Both the waitress and the barman were super friendly and added to our overall positive experience.

Will definitely be back! :) Hopefully sooner rather than later!

Amazing chill spot that really embraces the BBQ joint vibe and feel. The food is too notch and the portions are great for the price. We’ll definitely be back for more pickle chips, craft beers and meat of course!!

Jason and Judith did a terrific job of making us comfortable. From their ease in explaining the sourcing of the menu to suggesting great options from the well crafted draft menu, it was a memorable experience!

The owner and his staff are warm, friendly and knowledgeable about good bbq, and the owner remembers his guests from one visit to another. He stops by each table to shmooze with his guest, making it a homey atmosphere. The food isn't loaded with sauces, so it's not messy, and the spice level is just right.

I have been twice to this restaurant and have had a great meals both times. The food has always been incredible and the service has matched. The first time I went in I had a great conversation with the owner as I had just come back from Nashville so we were talking about bbq and it was amazing. Love this place, definitely recommend it if you want fantastic authentic bbq.

Our mains took an incredibly long time to arrive. And when they finally did it was all at different times, which made for awkward eating.
The chef cannot poach an egg... it was Simply a raw egg. The server was not accommodating when we sent it back, claiming that when the whites are runny like that it’s perfection. Will not eat here again.

They do not know how to run a restaurant. The server was friendly, but our meals came out 90 minutes after we ordered and were inedible. I'm sure they know a lot about BBQ and their catering business may not be as bad, but as a restaurant patron, I was so upset that we chose this restaurant to celebrate Father's Day.

They should close up shop until they have someone with experience running a restaurant floor on staff.

We heard the food was delicious, and the smoked meats did not disappoint. Even better, was the large craft beer selection and the fact that chef Jason sources as much as he can locally.

What a neighbourhood gem!

Amazing food as always. One in our group was especially pleased with the craft beer selection available on tap. We were a large group and we were all happy with food quality, taste, price, and the service.

We were a large group of people going out to eat but wanted something close by where we were staying. Everyone liked the idea of bbq, so we head out there.

It is tucked down below a bank or something of that ilk but the moment you open the door, the smell of smoke and bbq envelops you.

I was kinda worried at first because it didn’t seem that crowded. But once we had our food the worries were over.

The first few chews, I thought it was pretty good. Then suddenly this second wave of heat just came through that did not over power the first taste but rather harmonized with it.

I came from the land of bbq in the good old US of A, and this was some of the best bbq I have had.
