I'm sorry- i'm a big barbecue fan, but the food I bought there tonight was inedible. i can't understand the glowing reviews. Not a bit. I had sausage, which tasted like and had the consistency of cat food, and a rack of babybacks that had almost no flavor except for char. The beans were reminiscent of Heinz, but not as good. The only good thing was when I mixed their two sauces together the result was good- one was too sweet by itself, so when mixed with their hot sauce (almost like a wing sauce or cholula) they complemented each other nicely- reminded me of dreamland's sauce in Alabama.

The gents at the counter were very nice, and i want this place to succeed and cook good meat- It would save me many trips to 23rd St. in Manhattan, but that sausage? Put it this way- I got three for 10 bucks and threw out two. It was disgusting. Oh yeah- they have excellent pickles.
