    We got the sharing tray for two, there was so much food it was amazing. The burnt ends and the sausage were my favourites. Would definitely go back and have already recommended it to friends

    First time at this restaurant. Great music, thoughtful kind service, yummy tasty food with decent portions, lovely place to dine/eat solo but more fun as a group as many of dishes are to share.

    Absolutely STUFFED! The food was so good we couldn't stop eating. My partner and I got the Sharing tray. It's BIG but its worth every penny! The meat was full of flavour and not overly powerful or salty. The SAUSAGE was epic! We got a side of Mac and cheese, its the best mac and cheese we have had for a long time. If you want BBQ food and are in and around Oxford its worth the trip. Friendly staff and a fab american decor throughout.

    Came for my husbands birthday, Tuesday evening. Party of 6 people ranging from age 7 to 64. Large menu. Not much of a kids menu for food or drink but my 7 year old was more than happy to polish off a full plate of ribs! Food was very tasty. You get big portions. My husband and father in law had a bucket of bones and struggled. Left most of the fries! Great atmosphere even on a Tuesday night. Staff were friendly and attentive. The only slight issue was the speed of food coming, took 40 mins from ordering. It was all freshly cooked and bought out together so understandable, but if bringing little ones be prepared for a bit of a wait.

    Food was amazing, service was excellent and the general ambience was just what you want from a BBQ restaurant. Portions were huge! I have a pretty good appetite and I could only finish about two thirds of the meal. My only gripe is that we specifically chose to come on a Friday so I could order off of the weekend menu. The website says this is available Friday to Sunday only but when I went to order I discovered that this menu doesn't start until 5pm on Friday which isn't specified on the menu/website. We still had a great meal but just a bit disappointed that I didn't get to try the sliced brisket that is so well reviewed here.

    Please can you add steak to your menu, then I would come more often. Small 8oz steak, fries. Onion rings and coleslaw. That's the only thing missing 😋

    We booked for my sons 12th birthday in January . We took a group of 10 people (6 kids 4 adults - all had adult meals as my boys eat like full grown men ) . Price was fantastic but the food was even better !!!! We all had a burger's and Dirty fries , and all the kids had a milkshake (which they all said was lovely but very filling ) .... all the food was fantastic (very tasty but messy) ... I could happily say it was the best burger I've ever had and happily recommending it to every one i know . Well done to all the staff , they were so welcoming ! Oh and if you celebrating a Birthday make sure you send the extra ££ as the birthday treat was great --- including the big banner above our table !!!

    Great selection of food (as long as you like BBQ, but if you don't, why would you come here?!). Service was perfect. So friendly, and food arrived in good time. It was a quiet Sunday early evening, however. The food itself was mostly delishious. My burger include 'slaw which was way too much and over-powered any other taste in the burger itself (you literally couldn't tell there was also pulled pork in it), but after scraping that out, it was outstanding. Loaded fries were excellent. Left very full and very happy and shall return (hold the 'slaw).
