Great brisket and ribs! First come, first served so we have been disappointed if you aren't early because they run out. We also love the ribs at Twin Anchors in the city but this is much more convenient!

Looks like a hole in the wall place but there were many happy eaters there last night. We had the small order of rib tips with fries and they were terrific and there was plenty to eat. Will return.

My son with a peanut allergy and limited bbq exposure was fine and loves their 'angus burger'. I'm assuming that's still an option. Not sure about gluten free options though.

I'm not certain. I still check next time I'm there. I usually get the bourbon apple and I don't believe there is any gluten in it.
