Where else can you get a full rack of barbecue ribs, corn on the cob, baked beans, coleslaw and bun for $18.99. And microbrewery as an extra bonus. This restaurant is the best kept secret off the strip .

Portions are big, meat is tender and moist, flavor is excellent. You can't go wrong with either the ribs or chicken, and the service is great. Certainly worth the trip a block off the strip.

If you want a huge BBQ menu to choose from, this is not the place for you.

If you want some of the best, simple, BBQ to be had anywhere in the USA, then come find this hidden gem. They only do baby back ribs and chicken, but they do both to perfection. Meals come with 2 1/2 pieces of corn on the cob - a tad mushy, only tiniest complaint I could have. Excellent, simple cole slaw, about the best baked beans I've ever had, they use root beer in cooking them, 2 nice slices of garlic bread with butter.

Ribs and chicken are served wet, but not soaking, and of course there is more suace on the table if you need it.

They also have a micro-brewery on site, with a nice selection of craft beer - I had the Hefeweizen, delicious.

Servings with all the fixins mentioned are very big, so if have small appetitie might want to share.

David our server took very good care of us, helped make the meal a success.
