Best bbq in the twin cities. Large portions. Spicy. Ask for crispy potatoes with extra sauce it's the way to go. You can call ahead for pick ip.

Appears that there are new owners. Ribs were good as usual but there is not the usual amount of sauce anymore. Jojo's were good but they use to be sauced up too not anymore. Coleslaw and cornbread was ok,

Good meat... good smoking... did discover that our order was wrong when we got it home, but what we got was close enough to not be a real problem. Taste the sauce, or order some of each, as our group didn't agree on the appropriate...More
