Oh my goodness boyfriend and I ate here last night. This is hands-down the best barbecue joint I've ever eaten at. The ribs whether you get them wet or dry are fall-off-the-bone tender and good. We also ordered greens, macaroni, potato casserole, and baked beans...More

We were looking forward to eating the ribs but were highly disappointed. The ribs were served slightly warm and the meat was dry. The sides were just so-so. I can say the staff was very friendly and very accommodating. Had it not been for the...More
