Great food at a decent price.

I'm not usually one to stop at places like this as they tend to be expensive or lousy. This was an awesome change of pace as the food was great and the price was well within my comfort range. The new owners have stepped up the quality. This is one place you should give a try as I know I... read more

Ribs were awesome. Nothing more needs be said, but I will anyway. The family running this place was a pleasure to do business with. I will head out there again. One last thing - the map for this location/eatery is incorrect on Trip Advisor. The actual location is on the corner of SE Hwy 42 and 182nd St. About 2mi... More

Each time I visit my folks we make it a point to order ribs for dinner. The best around and probably anywhere I've had them before. So glad I stopped one day and have been back several times!

Buyer beware. This place is a run down trailer parked along side of the highway. It was being run by a teenaged girl and her father who had raw meat sitting out by their fruit stand which is also on site. This is a health inspectors dream to visit this place.
