Probably my all time favorite place to go. Great food!!! Service is excellent. I once ordered from there and had pick up service. It was poring rain and they insisted on coming to deliver it to my car rather than me coming in to get it when I offered.

A classic downtown.

The food is the main draw, for good reason. Every type of BBQ is represented, and you can slather their tasty house-made sauce all over it. The corn-bread is to die for.

They have a good taplist, mostly local stuff. Good stuff from Southern Tier, Ithaca, Rohrbach's, CB's, etc. Nothing crazy, but dependable, and turnover is relatively high.

Love the feel of the place inside- high ceilings, cool artwork and decorations. The food is expensive, as big BBQ places tend to be, but no more expensive than Sticky Lips. The food at Sticky Lips is slightly better though.

Fun place! Busy as hell - all the time! If you like BBQ, and you like craft beers, go give it a try, good stuff! The beer selection is pretty extensive, they carry many crafts and locals including Ithaca and many others. This is a must stop for us when we are in the Rochester NY area.

Atmosphere: unique; a dive bar BBQ joint you can take the kids to.
Quality: ordered a Lake Placid UBU served cold bit not too cold in the ubiquitous pint glass.
Service: smart alecky wait staff who work to keep things moving as the place is almost always busy.
Selection: nothing outstanding, just a solid tap list. Could have used more porters, brown ales to go with the BBQ.
Food: this is what people come here for. I've never had a bad or even marginal meal here. Ordered the brisket sandwich with fried okra and collards. Delish. Passed on dessert but have had it before and it's great.
