    Great location for pre event dinner. Just park in the parkade, skip across the street, eat, walk to Rogers Place. Easy peasy. A bit shabby now. Duct tape repair on booth fabric. Bathroom’s useable. Dry rub ribs were very dry on the inside. Almost in-edible. Sides felt a bit too pricey. Food took quite a long time to get to our table. Excellent waiter, excellent coleslaw, excellent pulled pork, excellent fries. Not the best but definitely not the worst dining experience we’ve had. A solid 6 out of 10.

    The food was amazing. The atmosphere is a fun BBQ bar style. The service left something to be desired. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed with the amount of tables she had. She did not check on us after we received our food. We asked two passing servers to assist with something that was incorrect, but nothing was resolved. They did take the meal mistake off our bill at the end per my request. Overall, I would recommend this place on a slow day, but on a Rogers Place event day, pass for something else in the area.

    Portion sizes were good. We ordered the roast chicken wrap with fries and slaw, and the riblets (surprisingly generous portions!). Dry rub on the riblets and the dusting on the fries were savoury and unique. Cocktail seemed pricey at $15, but I don’t drink alcohol and lack perspective on the reasonableness of this price point. Cass (sp?) was our server and was kind, friendly and attentive. The overall vibe of the restaurant is warm and open.

    Unfortunately, I saw mice in the restaurant. The owner/manager needs immediately rectify the situation. Because it may have a huge impact on the restaurant reputation.

    The food was OK, the beef ribs were as tough as I've ever had them, and the brisket has zero fat in it, it looked like the flat and no point. BBQ sauces were tasty. Additionally, their beer list is small, and of it being small, 3 of the main beers weren't available, all of this at 730pm on a Saturday night

    The food was good but the place didn't feel like a BBQ restaurant with a bar area. It looked more like a bar with tables around the perimeter.

    When we arrived, we waited at least 10-15 minutes before anyone came by to seat us. It was not particularly busy, but the restaurant was severely understaffed. We were seated between two tables stacked completely full of dirty dishes that the staff had not yet had time to take care of. We waited another 10 minutes and then left when no one came by. We can't speak for the food or the value because we didn't actually get a chance to eat there. The staff seemed overwhelmed. I don't blame them, but it was not a good night to eat there.

    Waited for over 15 minutes before being served which is understandable as only one server was working. However during the dinner rush with an event happening you would think they would be better staffed. There was no A/C and outside was blazing hot. Absolutely sticking to our seats gasping for air while we waited, horrible. Finally our server arrives and mentions it is an 18+ establishment. We are a family of four with our youngest being 20 years of age. He didn't have his wallet and therefore he was refused service. So after all of that waiting for nothing we got up and left. No where on the site when we reserved did it mention that everyone needs to be over the age of 18. Now we had to scramble to find somewhere else to eat during prime time and be done in time to attend our event. A half block down we found the most amazing restaurant, Maria Northern Mexican Cuisine. They were more than accommodating and found us a spot even though they were fully booked. Excellent atmosphere with a live band and full bar and amazing food. No ID required and we finished in time to go to our event.

    One of the best bbq spots in Edmonton. Brisket is amazing as well as the burnt ends, all the meats for that matter. Side are all delicious and well portioned, faves are the fries, potato salad, and corn bread muffins. Great room, excellent service and good for large groups

    Exceptional evening!!! Highly recommend!! The entire team was kind, attentive and knowledgeable. We had incredible burn ends with a family style for mains trying all the protien options and sides. The rosemary bramble cocktail was very fun. Who doesn’t love a little fire!! Just a delight! Save room for the lime/lemon on graham crust. One of the best!

    We arrived for a 6 pm reservation at 5:55, but there was no one to seat us. Finally,someone came to seat the couple ahead of us, who had waited for almost 10 minutes, they said. We had to wait at the door for another 10 minutes. I finally had to go into the restaurant and flag down a server, who seated us with no apology. We placed our order with the manager ( again no apology for being ignored) and waited and waited and waited for the food to arrive. Finally another server came over and apologized - said they hadn't expected so many people. Odd, since it was a Saturday night, and Trevor Noah was playing Rogers Place at 730 pm, which was where we were headed. When our food still hadn't arrived by 650, and others who had been seated after us were already eating, I raised a fuss with the manager. He took 50% off our order, but, for us, the damage had already been done. We bolted down our food and took off for Rogers Place. We won't be back. You get better bbq at Meat, which is far more efficiently run as well.

    Food was tasty but it took forever to get. The waitress was over worked because we could see her running from table to table to kitchen. Not all of us got refills on our drinks. Our food came on one big plater but we didn’t know whose was whose. We were not alone in the slow service. Another couple was leaving the restaurant at the same time as us and they were warning people waiting to get in of the slow service.
