Wanted BBQ ribs. Food was good. Sauce was not our style. Had Ribs, BBQ and Chicken tenders. Love the slaw. It was more food than we could eat. Service was slow.

My wife and I visited Calhoun's because I had heard that they had the best ribs in town. After waiting over 10 minutes, the waiter finally took our drink order. It took even longer to get our food. The ribs were very tough and dry even after adding more sauce. We tried to get another round of drinks but could... More

Went to dinner and the food was excellent! In our party were 2 children and 2 adults and our bill was around $70 which I thought was a good price. Service was great. We had Ribs that were amazingly good and the 1/2 chicken which was good also. If you choose to go there for dinner I would highly recommend... More

I was in the mood for barbecue and wanted to not have to drive far...the Pork Plate was enough pulled pork for at least two hungry people and the slaw and barbecue beans were awesome. The happy hour wine prices were awesome. Josh, my waiter, was very personable and made me feel comfortable since I was by myself.

Then sign says "Best Ribs in America" Who ever decided that just doesn't get out much. I have had 10 times better ribs in New Hampshire. Also had the brisket at our table and was underwhelmed by it also. If want better BBQ drive a little bit further down the road to Bennett's.

In all fairness, we arrived very late Sunday night at the cutoff for seating. Upon arriving at the hostess stand, we asked if they were still seating and the young man said "yes" and the young woman next to him said "no". After some very uncomfortable facial expressions were exchanged between the two and the young lady stomped off, we... More

Six of of ate, four got sick! Don't use the BBQ sauce! Service was not that great. Food was terrible and did not have the best proportions. But I guess when it's not that good, you don't want that much of it
