Being very familiar with Texas BBQ, I wasn't expecting much when visiting Iowa City. But this place has great meat, good sauce, good french fries, and yes delicious cornbread. Their "four alarm" BBQ sauce is more like 2-alarm, but nonetheless the flavor was good.

The ribs were good but not great. Decent selection of sauces, but stay away from the mustard sauce it is awful. It tastes like a German chef was told about Carolina mustard sauce vaguely and put a German flair to it in a sweet and sour sort of way that does not work at all.

The BBQ is super delicious. Many sauces to choose from, even Carolina sauce. Be sure to get the cornbread. It's brushed with honey butter for an irresistible treat. The baked beans are perfect. Cole slaw is right on. The staff is quick and friendly. Good place to go for lunch when you are in a hurry but want a good meal.

I have tried just about everything and found everything equally delicious. The sides are yummy! Many people find the corn bread as good as their mother's .
