Don't listen to the idiots, this place is fantastic and cheap. The ribs and chicken are to die for and I literally dream about eating here when I'm back home in Michigan. The ribs are my favorites... juicy and delicious. They don't need any BBQ...More

We come here every year, it's definitely worth the $10 taxi cab! The service is always amazing and it's been two years in a row that we got our server Johnathon! He's the best! The ribs are amazing. I recommend this place to anyone who...More

This was the best find for us during the week we spent in Cabo San Lucas. The chicken was so juicy and moist. The flavor is truly golden. The prices were dirt cheap. Cannot believe how close to the main area this restaurant was. You'll...More
