True BBQ & Whiskey Bar
Our server was great and the food was very good!
Overall, I'd say True BBQ is worth a visit. The food is well-prepared and portions are great (we each had a little something to take home!). The drinks were absolutely delicious and had the perfect ratio of sweetness and alcohol. The dining room is also beautiful, and I love its modern yet classic decor and bright lighting. The bar looked lovely as well, though we did not sneak over to take a good look.
My only qualm: from the host to the bussers, every employee seemed uncomfortable and it made us feel a bit awkward. For instance, when we asked for boxes, our waitress left to - we assumed - grab them for us. Then, a busser came by and asked us if we wanted our food boxed up. We let him know the waitress had gone to get us boxes, and he said OK. But, rather than tell us that restaurant policy was for employees to box the food for customers, he went and got the waitress so she could sternly tell us...as though we had made a big deal out of it. We didn't need to box it ourselves, we just didn't want anyone doing double work and weren't aware she had sent the busser to get our food! It was just a strange end to a night of strange interactions with staff.
It wasn't terribly busy either, but this could have just been an off night for everyone (it was a holiday that is pretty big for restaurants). I'd definitely still say their food is worth trying, whether you decide to dine in or take it to go!
We love Tru!
We ordered from the lunch menu and we were shocked to see how much food we received. The pork shoulder and baby back ribs were very good. We had mashed sweet potatoes as our side and it tasty. Their dessert selections were awesome.
Service good. Food just ok. My sandwich wasn’t very hot kinda tasted like it had been sitting awhile.
Not sure I’ll be back.
Great food. Great drinks. Great service. What more can you ask for.
The server was great & very pleasant. He really made our experience great. Don’ t lose him. He is very valuable.
Enjoyable dinner, and excellent service
Server kept forgetting our side dishes. Very fatty brisket. She said it’s normal, but I’ve had way better brisket elsewhere. Ordered drinks: 2nd was way different than the first.
We were seated at one of the outdoor fire pits. After we ordered our food, there was a one man band who performed. He was excellent. The food was ok. I ordered the Cajun shrimp and fried green tomatoes. The shrimps were good; the tomatoes not so much. My friend ordered the ribs. Very meaty but a little dry. Another friend ordered the Reuben which was good. The atmosphere was great. I will go again.
The food is phenomenal. Husband enjoyed his brisket and I love my pasta. It has all the smoked flavors and its mouthwatering. I am not a bbq person and their raspberry bbq sauce is over the roof. It is worth the price!!!!
Always a great meal
The 4 of us had wonderful food and great service. We will definitely do it again. Noise level is a little rough for someone with hearing aids so we will remember to go earlier. The brisket is so.....yummy!
Love the place. Service was a little slow, but food made up for it.
We saw an advertisement for all you can eat crab legs at True BBQ. It was our anniversary so I made a reservation for 4. When we got there they didn’t have a table for us except in the bar. We sat in the bar and after a 30 min wait we finally ordered drinks and appetizers. Some time later we placed our dinner order and were told that the “All you can eat crab legs”were only for a special event. We were even given a menu that said all you can eat crab legs right on the front. It didn’t say anything about stipulations. Since my wife was the only one who wanted the crab legs we asked for the manager. Cory the manager couldn’t have been more crass and rude. She said all the tickets were sold out. Really, “all you can eat crab legs” and you can’t sell one more serving?
Will never go back to True BBQ for anything!
The food and drinks were great. We sat outside. The server brought the entrees too early with the salad. We hadn’t finished our appetizer yet. It definitely ruined the service.
This was our first time at this place and it was really great! Had the best burger I’ve ever had. We will definitely be coming back soon!
Ben there several times for lunch and dinner. Food is always top notch as is the service. Love the vibe especially in the bar.
There were four in our party. I ordered the trio platter - the brisket and the pulled pork were good but the ribs were overdone and a little dried out. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meal.
This is a hidden gem and the ambiance is wonderful. Definitely a recommended spot for great food and drinks.
The atmosphere was wonderful. It had an upscale feel while offering affordability. I'll definitely return.
Mother’s Day Brunch!!! Terrible!!!! The service was awful and the food was cold 🥶 Yuck 🤢
I have been here before but on this visit the pulled pork had no taste to it, there was no flavor. Someone may have forgot to season the pork.
This was a delicious bar b q place. Very attractive, great food and great price
My wife and I were extremely impressed. I have already recommended the place to friends and family.
Customer service was very good ribs with smoke really good you have your choice of five BBQ sauces they make homemade chips they were good with the nest special rub for the ribs my husband had the trio he really liked it and I had the Reuben which was really good
The waitress was awesome... we were excited to come here for the first time because the online food sounded deeelish and we were excited to try new and different whiskey’s.
Everything tasted fabulous... smoked is always on point if done right in my book. And this was. However... from a price point perspective as good as it was it is overpriced. I mean $15 for a fried chicken sandwich with chipotle sauce you can buy in a store? I opted out of fries and asked for the garlic potatoes and the first few bites tasted like they were instant.
I will admit I am very particular about my food. I loved everything but I also cook from scratch. To me at this price point it should beyond that and have a spin on it besides being smoked. If it wasn’t smoked I would ask for a refund only because I know the preparation and time it takes.
Good BBQ. Brisket was the best of the meats. I ordered the BBQ trio that had ribs, pulled pork and brisket. For $30 the portions were really small on the pulled pork and brisket. Dish came with a half slab of ribs that were very tender and meaty. Pulled pork came in a monkey dish and was watery and not very tasty. Needed a lot more seasoning. Also had a double shot (neat) of one of the many excellent bourbons they featured. Again, for the price they charge, the pour was skimpy to say the least. Someone in our group had the brisket dinner and that was a very nice size portion and a very good price as well. Bottom line, decent BBQ, nice ambiance, very cool bar area with a gigantic selection of whiskeys. Service was friendly and prompt.
We went on Saturday at noon at celebrate Easter a day early . We meet up here a couple times a year as it is half way between family. Great food always .
Service was great everyone was in good spirits and food was excellent!
Our waitress was on point. I wish i remember her name; young lady long ponytail w/ glasses. She was superb!
Sunday around noon is the best time to go if your looking for a nice quiet lunch. My wife and I were surprised that there were so few people there at lunch time but we were pleased that we had the place practically to ourselves. “Raven” was very helpful in helping us choose different whiskies and the food was excellent! I wish they were closer but I will go back again.
The food was cold, like sitting out for 30 minutes cold. The 1 item my husband liked was the cornbread, unfortunately a bus person removed it while my husband was still eating. Worst birthday dinner ever!!! Don’t waste your $$$!
The service and ambiance was outstanding. The quality and flavor of food was phenomenal. The only issue was the food was slightly overpriced. Good price point for a couple but for families not so much.
We had a very knowledgeable server and she was very attentive we came in a pretty slow evening which we enjoyed my overall experience was a five-star event my only issue is with the portion size
Very nice night. The food was great. I was not thinking I was spending as much as I did? A little more expensive then I thought it should be.
I thought prices compared to other similar restaurants were a bit pricey.
Awesome dining experience! Can’t wait till next time!
