Great Ribs

Almost every time I go to Artesia, I stop and pick up a rack of ribs to bring home for rib night at our casa. Even without any of their spectacular hot and spicy BBQ sauce, these ribs just melt in your mouth and are delicious. With the sauce even better.

The food was so good. We especially loved the rolls and the sauce, along with everything else! Yum! The staff went above and beyond to make us happy customers. They were the kindest people. We were so happy we came.

If hungry for good old BBQ, this is definitely the place. As other reviews indicated, all the food is already cooked, so you just select what you want cafeteria style. There were several types of meats, many veggies and desserts too. Drinks were soda, water, or teas. It was comfortable, quick and inexpensive and the serving staff checked in with... More

Really awesome bar b q!!! Finger lickin good actually. Great decor, friendly service, the only negative is that many times there are no tables to sit at because everyone else thinks so too. Truly a golden problem for Restaurant owner John Henry!! Wow- I just made myself hungry describing it!!!

This place is known for it's great BBQ, and all of the scrumptious sides that one is accustomed in getting with this type of meats. You definitely get your money's worth with the good sized portions from the menu.

Good food and atmosphere. Food is cooked you just pick out what you want and they put it on a plate. Very busy. Had the ribs and they were very good.

perhaps the best bbq around, because it's the ONLY bbq around. The meal I was served was over-cooked and dry.

this is by far the best bbq I have ever eaten. The mashed potatoes with green chiles and the green beans are great sides. It is nice to sit down and just hang out.
