I've had bbq all over the US. This is hands down the best ribs I've had. Huge, meaty, perfect. Sides and atmosphere added in to make this the best bbq joint in America!

Love this place. Nice home feel, friendly and the food is what keeps you coming back. We always get the two meat dinner which is a great value and we have enough meat left over to take home for another meal.

We usually stop at Braums but someone mentioned this place to us and we weren't disappointed. Rib ends and Fiesta potato for me. Hubs did the rib plate. Great quick on and off the highway. We'll be back!

Everything was good! Can't go wrong with the ribs or brisket. The beans were delicious. It's a casual, friendly, local BBQ. A great find.

I didn't see beer, but we were traveling on a road day so beer wasn't on our radar.
