  • Alex J.Beef Brisket and waffle fries were really good. Didn't care much for the Mac n cheese. Lots of beer options! Reasonably priced. Definitely want to come back.

    33333 by Clay I.


  • Varun S.One of the best restaurants in Detroit. 2 entrees feed 3 people - pulled pork and brisket should be on your list. Same with mac n cheese and cornbread. Killer local draft selection too.

    55555 by Varun S.

    55555 by Sarah R.

    55555 by Jenifer K.

    55555 by Robin F.


  • Billy K.Pulled pork is the best!

    55555 by Billy K.


  • Andrew C.Yardbird sandwich, Mac n Cheese, microbrew on tap. Take your time, enjoy your evening. It's worth it.

    55555 by Andrew C.


  • Monkey R.Eggs & Kegs was poorly organized. Started at 1:00 and an hour later the food was not ready. No propane for the deep fryer, couldn't find an outlet for the waffle maker, very little seating.

    22222 by Monkey R.

    55555 by Bethany S.

  • Eunice M.Don't order the gumbo or jambalaya...DISGUSTING!

    33333 by Eunice M.


  • samThere's a reason everyone leaves with boxes. One entree (including two giant sides) is likely more than enough for two.

    55555 by sam


  • Brea P.The yard bird and mac & cheese!!!!

    33333 by Brea P.


  • Michael B.The Longhorn, Mac-n-cheese, cornbread

    33333 by Adriana B.

    33333 by Whitney H.


  • Lauren S.The draft list here is awesome! I've tried the pulled pork and the 1/2 chicken and both were amazing! The best sides have to be the mac n cheese and the mashed sweet potatoes.

    55555 by Lauren S.


  • Heather E.Get the large house salad and add meat for $4, total is $8.95 and its so much delicious food!

    55555 by Heather E.

    22222 by Julie G.


  • Jake S.The pulled pork sandwich (called "The Reason" here) has big chunks of tender meat. I couldn't find one sauce that I really loved, so be sure to test them all before sandwich use.

    55555 by Jake S.

    55555 by Brenda L.
