A BBQ JOINT IN THE HEIGHTS DISHING UP SMOKED MEATS, GOOD EATS, GREAT BEER AND JUICY DRINKS.
We smoke our barbecue the old school way with plenty of oak wood and time, adding the right amount of salt and spice to let that lovely marriage of process and product evolve into something transcendent.
Our barbeque is served market-style alongside a full bar & a Jones Soda/Cheerwine fountain.
