“The bombast BBQ in town! Yes, better than Roger's! Wholly Smokin' will make you say "Wholly SH*T!" The food is great, the service is quick, and the bartenders and drinks are top notch! The courtyard behind it gets LIVE when there's live music! If you got one thing, get their Chicken Pesto Wrap with loaded mashed potato! ”
