The Scene<br />The Syracuse-based barbecue phenomenon plunked a sprawling roadhouse with all the familiar back-road accoutrements into an abandoned meat factory. The roll call of devotees includes area families, couples on casual dates and old friends alike. <br /><br><br />The Food:<br />Though fried green tomatoes and punchy boiled shrimp start things off right, the smell of smoking meats quickly adjusts the focus. The smokey-sweet pork ribs gently release from the bone and the Texas brisket, a touch dry, gets a lift from a topping of tangy cured jalapeños and a dash of hot sauce. It's even safe to venture from red meat with the truly moist and tender chicken, brined then smoked for deep flavor. With the exception of the cakey corn bread, sides keep pace, with tangy Creole potato salad and sweetened baked beans the standouts.

"We arrived five minutes before our 6 pm reservation.The place was packed and we had to fight our way into the restaurant just to check in. We checked in and were given a questionable,"We'll do our best to get you seated." They were telling walk-ins it was a 2-3 hour wait.We were seated 20 minutes late but our server did come over right away.It took another 20 minutes for me to get my soda and 40 minutes for my husband to get his bottled beer.Dinner took an hour to get to our table but was surprisingly hot.We asked for the check as soon as our dinner arrived at the table.That took another 20 minutes.The staff did it's best on a tough day but the mess that we walked into and endured to eat dinner, was caused by what we perceived as bad mngt."
