Went there for the 2 for 1 BBQ special between 2 to 4pm. Well worth it. The BBQ ribs and cole slaw were very good. Douglas the waiter was very competent and friendly. Will be back. Worth a visit on game day as well.

The daily weekday afternoon special is 2for1 side ribs with fries and slaw. Very tender although messy. Friendly service. Shout out to Douglas. Excellent value.
