Picked this place because of its rating on TripAdvisor. We had a large group of about 35 Hockey Boys and their families. The manager was amazing at accommodating all of us by breaking us up into smaller tables and he hustled to do so. EVERYONE...in our large group RAVED about the FOOD!! Service was great too! Big winners were the Brisket, Pulled Pork, Mac & Cheese, Beef Jerky…. It was all good and a cool place too. Cool little town with cool shops around and cool graffiti walls near. Only negative would be parking. On street parking and on a Saturday we had to go around the corner for a spot. If we lived in the area we would 100% be back!More

Wow, this place lives up to the 3,000+ reviews. We stopped by in transit. Hip little area, we shopped around while we waited. There are a couple gift shops, thrift shops, and a gourmet popcorn place across the street. Perfect, because we are traveling with...2 kids who need to be on the move. Also, cool graffiti walls. The restaurant was prompt and delicious.. the husband ordered something called a meat mountain. I have no idea what it was but I do know that it was delicious. Everything we ordered was delicious. You should go thereMore

The food was delicious, but the wait was long due to low staffing. The waitress was amiable and accommodating. The only complaint we had was our wings were cooked entirely too long and came out burned, but overall, a great BBQ joint.

Went with family of six, enjoyed patio. Everyone's food looked and smelled great. My lean brisket wasn't that lean and the mashed potatoes were different, but my son's reuben looked great.

Had a great lunch with my wife and son. We had the reuben which was superb. Slow smoked generous portion of pork belly. The fries are way better than average. We got the pickle fries which were awesome including the two dipping sauces. My son...got an amazing sandwhich with brisket and pineapple...the chinchilla? Ordered sides. The beans were so good along with the mac and cheese. Will definitely be going back! Nice selection of Michigan beers and a really cool setting.More

My wife and I were passing through Lansing and looked on Trip Advisor for a place to lunch. Upon entering you get a sense of a very good atmosphere. We sat at the bar and I ordered the Pork Belly Rueben, my wife had the...Classic Pulled Pork . Both sandwiches were most excellent! Big portions and the fries were delicious! The bartender was a fantastic server. He checked often and refilled drinks without us even noticing that our drinks were low. What a great place to have a drink, a meal and hang out.More

If you go to Old Town, you must go to MEAT. This place was featured on Dinners Drive-Ins and Dives and for good reason; this place is amazing! The homemade Mac and cheese is served in a 9” pie pan and you can add your...choice of meat and veggies. Vegans and vegetarians stay home.More

Awesome BBQ! This was my first time there. Some of the best fries I’ve ever had. Brisket, pork and turkey were phenomenal. Everything on the menu and sauce was really good. I would love to go back if I’m near Lansing again. Also it’s heavy...metal themed! I didn’t know that initially, very coolMore
