    Loved EVERYTHING!!!

    Absolutely love how dog friendly this place is. They had a doggy station that offered complimentary bowls, water, and bones for my fur baby. And she was absolutely ecstatic. The food was delicious and you can even order meats without sauce for your pup. We will definitely be going back.

    Super dog friendly

    This place has great outdoor seating for dinning with your dog. They also have large rib bones for your dog to chew on while you dine. The bbq is also delicious. The service is friendly and fast. A must go for casual dinning with you pooch.

    Awesome food for me and my puppy

    We got here for dinner in a cooler night. They turned in the heating lamp for us. They also had a free dog bone and they provided a bone for my puppy to chew on. The food was absolutely amazing and my puppy loved it!!

    good time

    As soon as we sat down, the host brought over a bowl of water and asked if our dog wanted a real bone. Good food and beverage.

    Good deal

    I took my german Sheppard to bulls and we all had a good time. As son as we sat down he got a bowl of water and a bone to chew on and we had a good brisket sandwich and my mom had a pulled pork. Both were real good and the prices where good. The staff where real nice as well

    They will give your dog a bone (real beef) if you want to let them

    Great Staff, Excellant BBQ

    I was starving on the way home from dog park and stopped in for lunch. Brisket sandwich was tender and flavorful, ala carte pork rib sampler was bite off the bone tender and wonderful with their spicy sauce.

    The beast was excited getting a bone right away but was very demanding of the staff to keep his water bowl full. Kept them hopping. Thanks!

    Great place to enjoy some good BBQ with you fur buddy!

    Reasonably priced, great tasty ribs

    We love this place for several reasons. Pork sandwiches are tender with your choice of barbecue sauce. Quick, friendly service. Large patio area and my poodle can enjoy his own bone!

    love coming here!

    I take my dog here often. They have a patio in back (probably seats 50) and allow dogs to sit right at the table with you. They bring dogs a beef bone and water bowl!

    A real treat!

    I foster a 4 year old female boxer named Roxy. I wanted to take her with us for Valentine's dinner as I had been away all day so I chose this restaurant. I brought her blanket with in case she got cold. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of well behaved canines out for dinner. I soon found out why they were so well behaved as they were given bones to gnaw on while waiting in line and also while at the dinner table. Roxy was in heaven! She was able to be with her family and her family was able to dine out on some delicious Barbeque pulled pork and beef brisket and chicken. And Roxy lay on her blanket gnawing away on her bones. I took one home and left it on her blanket. The neighbor dog found it and took it home, but I saw later that the two were "sharing". The owners were great and obviously dog lovers themselves, and the wait staff are quite adept at stepping over and around our four legged family members.
