Order the brisket. Ask politely for extra bark, which is the black stuff cooked on the outside of the brisket. Get the mac & cheese and the greens. Get a bunch of pickles and different barbecue sauces at the self service stand, and enjoy a delicious, decadent meal.If you want to save a few calories, get the roasted chicken breast, which is also fantastic. They will also cut it off the bone and serve it is a fantastic. Simply the best barbecue in Columbus.

Service was excellent, start to finish. Prices were pretty reasonable. I had the Smokehouse Sampler shareable app, just me, as my lunch. I added a side of baked beans. The sampler includes rib tips, wings, Southwestern egg rolls, onion straws, and sauerkraut balls. The rib tips had a nice, slightly fiery dry rub, with flavor deep into the meat. The wings are smoked, and again have deep flavor. They give you a couple of BBQ sauces to dip in; neither meat needed them, always a good.

Absolutely the BEST BBQ I have had in Columbus. Had the combo with ribs and brisket and onion rings. Very reasonably priced, service was great and quick, and 20 different beers on draft plus a very large number of bottled beers. It may not look like much, but you can take your family or hang out by the bar... the food is absolutely great!!
