The outside looked really good. I ordered takeout and I was surprised by how neat the take out portions were in the container. I had pulled pork, sweet potato fries nd baked beans. My wife had cole slaw, a beef brisket and Mac and cheese I think. She liked the meal but not the sides and she had to put some spice in them. I liked everything on mine and I had a beer while I waited too. Jam Session local beer was awesome, got a little buzz too. 4/5 on the food, would definitely go again and get a sandwich next time

I LOVE this restaurant! I'm an equal opportunity eater: Vegan, vegtarian, or beef prok and chicken-- depends on the day. These folks have a great selection across the board--last night I had some spectacular pulled pork--but the tofu is fantastic, and so is the beet lover's salad. Great service, great concept, great food.

This is a great Bbq place with both indoor and outdoor seating. I really enjoyed the rice bowl with pulled pork. It was a healthy serving size - enough for a second small meal. Others in my group got more traditional bbq dishes. They have some great sides to choose from - roasted Brussels sprouts, asparagus, etc.

Small cozy restaurant with great service. The burger was very good and the sweet potato fries were the best I have ever had. The sliders were on the show dinners, driver ins and dives and were told to be great, but we're just okay for me. The bread used didn't seem fresh and store purchased. Overall great meal and would go back.

We were roaming downtown and found this quaint little home style restaurant. We sat at the tiny bar area which we were impressed they had at all. It's nice that you can have a sit down dinner or sit for a quick bite and a brew. The brisket was outstanding and the mac and cheese burger was decadent. The wings were pretty good too, and they had an assortment of local hot sauces. Well worth the visit.

Went to the Rock Hill location. Beautiful location, very nice restaurant. The waitress and service were great. The hush puppies delicious!! The meats had strong smoke flavor, too strong for me. Nice selection of sauces. I would encourage anyone who is a BBQ afficiano to give this place a try.

Great little BBQ Place in the heart of Fort Mill. Worth a visit. Cozy atmosphere. Underwhelming menu. Friendly staff. 5 sauces to choose from. We went for lunch and food came out fast. Enjoyed every bite. (My order was Pulled Pork plate with 2 sides). Pork was done well with good moisture and just enough smoke flavor. Baked beans were pleasingly done - would order this side again. The spicy Green Beans were too spicy for my pallet; and nothing to brag about considering its green beans. Will probably try the Jalapeo Cheese Grits next time as my other side.

Was a fun place to visit. Nice environment. I had the jalapeno mule to start. Refreshing but spicy on the lips. I had the beef brisket with baked beans and slaw. Both the sides were a unique twist on the classics. Enjoyed them both. The brisket was a thick cut with a decent fat cap. It was tasty and juicy which I usually find hard to get at most BBQ.
