We come to this restaurant often. while the food is consistently good, the service tends to be a little slow. When we come here, we usually put our "patient "hats on and enjoy the company.

I agree with chapelhillmom about the restaurants and their definition of half a rack of ribs. but a real rack of ribs usually contains 14 bones after butchering. And that is 14 ribs from each side of the pig for a total of 28 bones.
