Most people get their orders to go here. I've been frequenting this place for years but have seen only a handful eating there and never at one time. They've got a huge grill and grill master chefs who know how to handle it. The ribs...More

Food here was very good. The sauce was a little bit runny, but the taste was superior. I got the pulled pork sandwich with fries. Not a bad price, either. You can get a drink, meat, and fries or potato salad for like $9-$11 bucks.

There are no problems in this restaurant. The sauce is tasty, the meat drips off the bone, the flavor unique. Definitely the best place to get BBQ in town!

I usually avoid places like this that are in bad neighborhoods. E &L is the exception. Everything here is good, but the rib tips are a tender, smoky masterpiece. The fries are good, but get sauce on them. Get sauce on everything!
