Wasn't sure from the outside, wasn't sure what the floodgates were as we were expecting to see the river. Once in, ordered ribs, slaw and cheezy taters. Wife got bbq plate. Everything better than expected. Brought home bread pudding, so we'll see.

While looking at the murals in downtown Cape Girardeau we walked by this restaurant and turned around for it smelled so good. Had BBQ chicken and pork which were both good. They were short on staff but we received our food in a reasonable time.
