1/2 Rack of ribs and 1/2 a chicken for $13.99! Get the Players card to get the extra discount. Some of the best BBQ I have ever had. Craft beer was $4. What's not to like! Highly recommend this restaurant.

The ribs were really great, and a meaty rack - enough for two if we could have gotten a couple side salads. There’s nothing green on the menu in the BBQ joint, however. The baked beans were really tasty with a sweet and tangy flavor;...More

I would suggest checking the distance using google maps, as it would help plan your route. With all cards on the table...having been for many of the hotel buffets (Bellagio, Caesars etc) i would rather go to for the rib rack!
