Well they say they have the best ribs in town & they really do. Excellent meal and value for money, and fast service even though it was really busy. Will definitely be back for more

My hubby and teen had the ribs and our other teen had grilled chicken, all served with chips and salad (potatoes or rice also on offer). Portions are huge! The bill wasn't!... More

All the food and drinks for five of us came to about 83 euros; about 17 euros each. In other words about £13 a head. Quite unbeatable.... More
