Arguably Detroit's best BBQ spot. Great food, and one of the best tap lists in metro Detroit. 50+ taps, usually some rarities on as well. Occasional cask and cellar-pull offerings. Tap-takeovers an patio parties from time to time as well. Great spot to grab a beer and some good cue. (288 characters)

Great food great beer, just too many waiters pushing the flavor of the month beer from Atwater when there are so many great options on the boars. Yardbird sandwhich and a beer is a great end to the work week :) (210 characters)

Visited at 5pm on a wednesday, after seeing how busy this place is.

Ordered a half-rack of baby back ribs with sides of potato salad and wedge fries. Amazing. the sauces they had at every table were delicious. Enjoyed a Rogue 7-hop with my ribs, it was so freakin' fresh.

Perhaps the only con about this place was the server. She wasn't knowledgeable about beer... My friend asked for a hoppy IPA, which they were sold out of, so she suggested Stone's Crime 2013 beer instead! Little did we know that it came in a 500ml bottle (17.99!) and it wasn't a hoppy substitute - its stupidly spicy!

Apart from that, I would definitely return here. Place has a very classic Motown feel. (682 characters)

Service was sad, they didn't seem to know what beer they had and didn't and were unwilling to try and figure it out. (116 characters)
