Has anyone been? Was looking to try but have only recently read about it in InTown Westchester magazine.

    It's okay, not amazing but decent. I think Holy Smoke in Mahopac and Q in Port Chester are both better (although Q has been inconsistent lately). Haven't gotten to the place in Wingdale. It's been about a year or more since we were there so can't recall specifics of the meal - guess that tells you something - but I know we had ribs and they were good, decently smoked. The sides didn't make an impression. They have home made potato chips that are a nice munchie while you wait - have them with some bbq sauce. The sauces were decent if I recall properly. Again, nothing to write home about. It's worth a try if you're not too far away but I wouldn't schlep to get there.

      I agree with laylag. We like it fine for take out every once in a while. The pork ribs are fine, heavy on the smokey flavor in my opinion. My husband likes the beef brisket. I think the meat is better than the sides, in general. My mac and cheese was oily, but they have awesome hush puppies! The mashed potatoes were good, too.

        good pulled pork....sides and the ribs are mediocre IMO...have eaten there a bunch of times...q is better I'd say.....I liked the old jimmy lees place, but the food was kind of inconsistent....if you like bbq give it a shot

          For the area I think it's good. It may not cut it if they put this place down south or in Texas but for Westchester I think it's good. I also liked Jimmy Lee's and I am dying to try Q.
