It's ok
After reading all the reviews, I decided to check this place out...honestly, I wasn't overly impressed. The decor was plain with odd tables especially for a small place. The band was too loud for the tight space... now onto the food... the plain pizza was just okay...for a guy coming out of culinary arts, I was expecting something better...the chicken tenders were decent, but the meat almost felt grainy... hard to explain the texture...try it out... the BBQ wings really didn't have any flavor..there was quite a bit of smokey flavor to it which was good, but no salt, no pepper..just a smokey wing... maybe it was a off night...i'll give it a try again in a few months and update.

outstanding
not only was the BBQ outstanding, we enjoyed the best crabcakes we have ever had, the sides are nothing like the slop you see at most BBQ joints, and to enjoy it all with live Blues!! Could not have had a better evening, and great value

There's much better out there
After reading all the great reviews, I couldn't wait to try this place, but I was pretty disappointed. I ordered pizza (average at best) and onion rings (onions were still raw inside and just generally gross). I'm a NY transplant as well, looking for my "go to" pizza place, and have tried several that were better than this. I will say, the service was very courteous and the delivery very quick.

Best Eats around!! not to miss
one of those little gems we just love to discover. Not only is the food fantastic, its cheap! And the atmosphere is awesome, love the outdoor patio and newly renovated interior, and the live music when we have made it has been a real treat. Nothing else like it around.

BEST BBQ IN MONTCLAIR
Off the beaten path of bloomfield ave, but worth the trip. I found their BBQ to be more authentic and tastier than some of the better known BBQ restaurants in Montclair. Try them out, you won't be disappointed. Their pizza is very good also and worth a try.

Best pizza outside of NYC
When I moved to NJ 3 years ago - I went on a quest for great pizza. Fortunately I found it in my own town. Best pizza I've had in NJ so far.
