I used to come here years ago, ribs were good and a variety of sauces. Went there in mid-April this year, during the day. Ordered full rack. Over cooked, dry...to the credit of a great waitress, the order was replaced. That being said, the ribs were tasteless, as if they had been boiled first prior to being smoked. The smoke... More

Came here for lunch. We ate out side on their patio. Was a little noisy from all the road noise on Hiawatha Ave, but pleasant. I had the apple-wood smoked BBQ pork sandwich. It was delicious.

I would like to say good things about this place but, the service has been so poor I just can't. The food is pretty decent but, again service is HORRIBLE!!! Plus it is insane that a place so close to the falls won't allow people on the patio with their dogs! We won't be back and won't recommend this place... More

Good value and good food. Had chicken and fries. Coleslaw was a tad off but overall it was great! Will go again.

Nice local restaurant serving great BBQ. Had the Indecision Sliders, which includes two pork and brisket sandwiches and a side. I enjoyed the creamy coleslaw. Service was fast and the small dining room was cozy. Definitely a popular take out place. Definitely will return again!

We where visiting family at the VA and went to Caps for dinner. We have been there many times but they are from out of state. They thought the food was great and want to go there next time they are at the VA. Great food, nice people.

Stopped in for breakfast recently after hearing great things about the place in general. These guys are known for their BBQ but the breakfast is also amazing. I had the steak and eggs and my buddy had an omelet; we both were happy with our choices. Coffee was good, and the staff was personable and to the point. A small... More

I just remembered this place a couple days ago. I used to eat lunch here when I worked in the metro area. I love their pulled pork stacker sandwich and slaw. It's pricey at $9.75, but worth it.

My husband had the ribs with sliders. He enjoyed the BBQ and had food to bring home I had the chicken sandwich which was moist and juice with great flavor. We will definitely be back and try some more delicious food. The staff was friendly and everyone thanked us for coming in and to come again to try breakfast.

If you're on the light rail in the Hiawatha area be sure to stop at Capps for some delicious mouth watering BBQ!
