Delicious Ribs

My husband and I enjoyed the ribs for 2 platter and it was delicious! Tender rib meat and tasty sweet BBQ sauce. We even bought some rub to bring home.

Yep, they printed it and I posted it! Got me one of their aprons w/ that saying on it too... So, we've been here twice! Both times we had a great experience with the food. Delicious pulled pork and beef brisket. Sauces, coleslaw... Yum! After a long stroll through town, this was a fun place to have lunch! It's easy... More

The BBQ sauce was nothing special but the ribs were very tender. The combo platter came out quickly (enough for 2 people!) and the beans had a chili powder in them, which was tasty and different. A small and friendly place.

Small place but great food! My wife had the special "Mayan Tacos" and she loved them. I had sausage and it tasted fantastic also. This was the best meal we had during our visit to Eureka Springs. Cold beer and great food. Hard to beat!

All of the barbeque is really good and well prepared. I have tasted all of the selections and cannot say one is better than the other.It just depends on you preference. But the food is good and the beer is cold.

The brisket was tasteless. Excellent service but it didn't begin to make up for the bad food. I would not recommend this to anyone.
