It takes something significant to get me to write on TA, but as much as I had been thinking for days about getting mussels down the road, my boys obviously preferef to try this famous rib place I had heard about. Mussels have been forgotten. You must go here if you are having dinner in town

We reserved for 16 people and they did a great job handling all of us together with different bills. Ribs were excellent, so good in fact we bought the sauce to take home. Fries were awesome, salad delicious. Everything was great.

We enjoyed a very nice meal, great fast service and excellent food. Very standard food selections but clearly all house made including the various dressings and sauces. Would definitely go back and have the ribs again!
