Best ribs in town.

Great ribs. Everything we've eaten there has been really good. The service has improved a lot. St. Patrick Day corned beef and cabbage was the best we've had. A good place to eat.

The ribs were tender, not flavorful enough for me. My partner ordered the special: honey chicken & half rack ribs. Same price as on menu. However, on menu you pick your sides, for the special, it was corn on cob and a piece of cornbread (yep that was considered a side). My meal was the whole slab (planning on lunch... More

I came here as a family visit. This is one of the best BBQ meals I have ever had. Ribs, mac and cheese, potato salad, calamari, lobster bisque soup, and bread. Everything is made fresh in house. This is truly a gem. You would never know it being in a strip mall, but give this place a try. You will... More

The ribs were good but didn't really have that fresh cooked taste . Very large portion for a full rack . The BBQ sauce was... More

Bar b q did not appear to be fresh at all! Bacon wrapped shrimp was good I would not go back if I travel again to Monroe. Waitress was friendly but did not appear to suggest the barbq which should have been a sign

Rude staff. When my meal came it was not prepared like the menu said so I asked to have it corrected. Was given a very hard time about it. Manager did not even want to come to the table. I left with out even eating my meal. Then they still wanted me to pay for it. We will not be... More

My first review was for a visit in November 2014 and we really enjoyed our experience. We visited again the 2nd Saturday in December. Wow what a different experience. It was pretty awful. First of all they changed the menu and dramatically increased their prices. The waiter was very unfriendly and made us feel like he was doing us a... More
