Hank's was recommended upon arrival at the Inn we were staying at. We certainly were not expecting such an amazing meal in small-town BC. I had the "Pulled Pork Main" and my wife had the "Smoked Meatballs and Fettuccine". We shared both between the two...More

Had our usual order of rack of ribs, and, they were good. Dry rubbed, then smothered with some great sauce. Sorry "Hank" does not make beans anymore, but the meal was great. A short wait but worth it.
