Like the links, the ribs and tips aren't bad, but they have the obnoxious policy of not allowing you to order the ribs without sauce.

I have been to this place several times. They continue to get worse in food and service. Now they give you half the food for the same price. I won't be back again/

The ribs taste very good, but the service is very slow. No matter which location you visit, be prepared to wait at least 30 min or more for your carry out...
