Planning on trying it on my trip to Baltimore. Do they have beer/wine? Is it worth the drive from the Inner Harbor?

    It is worth it, just take a six-pack!
    If you don't feel like making the trip and want to go to a place near the Inner Harbor that does have a full bar - although the food is not as good. There is "Rub": www.rubbbq.com

        No, they do not have beer and wine, although I believe that you can bring your own. They have seating, both inside and out.

        If you are craving BBQ, it is definitely worth the drive. I just made the identical trip on Friday and was VERY happy that I did.

        One note, I think they put pit beef on the menu because so many people were asking for it. Pit beef is not their specialty. Go with the ribs, brisket, pork or chicken. I had all four this weekend (ok, I was with a group and TASTED all four) and all were excellent.

          I agree, although the pulled pork with Guy's Pig Dip and the ribs are my favorites. Unlike many BBQ joints, their sides are also worth it -- they may have the best baked beans I've ever had.

          I can see drinking a beer with it, although wine seems a bit much. But old style sweet tea is the thing to drink with BBQ, which they do have.

          I love that place.

            I was there on Friday, too.

            Split a half slab of the dry ribs and a pulled pork sandwich with baked beans and cole slaw (and a lot of mustard sauce). Everything was excellent except the cole slaw, which was totally average.

            I went because I was in the area and wanted to try it, but I'm not sure I would make a trip up there just for dinner since there are so many bars/restaurants downtown. But if I was in the area again, I would definitely go back.

            Their menu makes no mention of beer or wine. I'm a bit surprised about that.
            If you must have barbecue, I don't know of a better place to go and it's not too far off 83.
            I wouldn't be too concerned about seating. It's not that small in there (bigger than Urban bbq in Rockville) and I think I remember seeing tables outside, though I could be wrong on that.
            I'd give it a try.

              I don't need bbq its just there is no good bbq in Boston so i thought I'd give it a shot. Are there any other local faves that are must have?

              they barely even have a place to sit in there, i doubt they have beer/wine. its more of a carry out/lunch type of plave. I probably wouldnt drive there from downtown. lets see what others think, but i tend to think they will agree with me....
