The Ribs were fantastic and huge, but good to share for two people. Definitely finger licking good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our waitress was hilarious.

Good BBQ, however not as good as I expected. The place was very busy. Service was good. The ribs were fine, baked beans were very good and the slaw was good also. Good place for lunch.

Slightly greasy, but totally finger licking good. Sides were tasty, very small portions and surprisingly filling. Surprised they brought the check never asking if we wanted dessert.
