Described as a smokehouse and bbq restaurant serving ribs, burgers, steaks and more meaty goodness it sounded like everything we love in one place, I think it's any meat eaters idea of heaven! There's a wonderful aroma, which hits you as soon as you walk in, very similar to that Summery, meaty bbq smell, and a definite signal that there is good food being served.
The interior is decorated in the style of an old American saloon with wooden planked walls decorated with hanging skulls and retro beer trays, booth seating and a big bar serving a multitude of drinks. I was boring and opted for a pint of coke!
As we had been spending the majority of the weekend eating already, we didn't want to be too greedy, so opted to share the nacho chips starter; a basket of crisp nachos with what Ray described as 'really, really good' salsa on the side.
The basket was the perfect size to share between the two of us and nibble on until our mains came. I don't like salsa so I took it upon myself to try the sauces on the table as dips for mine; I would really recommend the Smoked Hickory BBQ sauce, it was tangy and smokey with a bit of a kick - delicious!
I did add a bit more sauce and some salt from the table to my food to add some more flavour as it was slightly bland, but I loved the Hickory sauce so much it was soon delicious. I would rather it came to the table like this than too saucy or smokey though, it's just down to personal taste.
The portion size was huge, and I sadly didn't manage to eat it all (as hard as I tried!)
