I've had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant for total of five times. This place is by far my favorite barbecue restaurant in the city. All the meat has lots of flavor cooked to perfection. I love all the meats and all the sides. The prices are great too.
By far the best ribs I've ever had. All the sauces were delicious and served warm! The beef brisket and the pulled pork just melt your mouth. This place is a gem! University City should be glad to have such a great restaurant.
The sauces are excellent and they offer smoked tofu, which is great because us vegetarians like bbq also, but bbq is mysteriously usually just associated with meat. The place is in a converted Jiffy Lube, which is also cool. I was there in the frigid Winter and am interested to see if they open the "garage doors" in the warmer weather. However, I do think their choices for sides are lacking. The sides offered are not very appealing and very limited, as is the dessert. Overall I think this new bbq joint has great potential with a few tweaks here and there. They put a great amount of time into their smoking process and it shows!
