I am very particular about my ribs--I like them seasoned and savory and not sweet or slathered with BBQ sauce and I like for them to be tender and cooked medium, not cremated. Boy, was I happy! This is the first time in years I...More

My husband tried plate with 4 rubs and enjoyed them. Macaroni and cheese was great. Slaw , not so much. I had ribs with sweet sauce and they were good. Pulled pork had little flavor. Great sauces.

Typical BBQ restaurant with a good section and excellent sauces. Chicken was very good but the ribs (4) were not very meaty. Good place for a quick meal and a beer. .

Best dry rub ribs. Preferred them over their sauced ribs. Sweet potato casserole was a nice side with the ribs. Green beans were the closest to my grandmother's yummy homemade I've found. Order the banana pudding if there are enough people to eat it. It...More
