Food Menu

American Barbecue food is perfect with beer and perfect for casual dining in a bar – and it is fun! A feature of smoked meats is that they are dry-rubbed or marinated first.

As a result, some of our dishes are both smoky and spicy but many are not. Some are delicately smoked (like our lamb sirloin) while others are stronger, like our ribs.

But pork loves smoke, try the pulled pork to prove it for yourself! We use all the local suppliers and ingredients that we can but for authenticity some things are imported. Carolina Reapers for our hottest ‘loco caliente’ sauce being a good example.
