    Local Favorite

    This is one of our favorite places to not only take our dog, but to get BBQ as well. Very much a hole in the wall kind of place, but the food is great and the patio is a large space with plenty of spots not directly in the sun. At night times it can busy due to live music, so keep that in mind when going. Waiters and staff are very friendly and love pups. Overall we love this place and come here often with our pup!

    Went with my dachshund and let her chew on the rib bones after I ate them. Amazing BBQ and service, they were quick to get my pup water and so friendly! 100% recommend!

    Busy Place

    We went on a Sunday night - 7pm. The place was crowded, but we found a table. Several people there had dogs & a couple had a bowl of water. We were there until 9pm and couldn't get the lady to bring a bowl of water until a couple of minutes before we left. It took a long time to get my nachos, but they were good. My friend got 2 beers for the price of 1, so she liked that. :) I'd go back.

    One of Our Favorite Finds

    My Corgi and I take lots of road trips and this is one of our best finds yet. The staff and the food are amazing. They saw us walk up and came right out to seat us. They made sure we had a table in the shade and brought a big bowl of water. When I ordered a combo platter and mentioned the chicken was for my dog they not only made sure it had no sauce, but separated it from the other food so it didn't get anything she might not be able to have on it. We'll be back the next time we're in Nashville!
