Great Ribs, Great Staff

The Ribs are great, I am sure the other choices on the menu are good also, but the ribs are great. It's a busy place, with very limited seating, a nice little bar area to wait for a table (they don't take reservations) so go with patience, if you want to eat early, arrive earlier, but it's worth... read more

Menu consists mainly of ribs and other BBQ-like entrees. There are also a few sandwiches and off menu specials. Very informal atmosphere, small with low ceilings. Prices slightly higher than you'd expect for the experience. Food is definitely OK and tasty. Staff seems friendly. Be sure to ask server which "extras" they offer in such a friendly way are "add-on"... More

Very good for ribs and steaks. I have the fish and should have went for the ribs. The wait staff was very nice. We had a group and when a larger booth opened up our waitress moved us (that was nice).

Been here many times. Great ribs fall off the bone. Sauce fantastic. Do not expect fancy. Plastic plates. Good service. Ribs are pricy but worth it.

We have eaten here several times. Their ribs are out of this world. They also have a very good menu to choose from. Fast and friendly service at the table and bar.

These are the best ribs in the area and the best I've ever eaten. I can't eat ribs anywhere else now. The steaks and shrimp are also very good and the prices are reasonable. You have to get there early though as they don't take reservations and fill up fast, usually before the posted 5 PM opening time. If you... More

When we moved here from California we were looking for a good place to eat. This was a great find. We love the food, the atmosphere and the people. They are best known for their ribs my favorite is their steaks. They are always full, expect to wait. The hours are not like other restaurants. Be patient it is worth... More

When Dennis passed away over a year ago, I expected that the restaurant might close but they have remained open and seem to be as busy as ever,. That's a good thing, The ribs are absolutely wonderful....with fine sides. Dennis when he was still alive and presiding over the restaurant introduced us to Wisconsin potatoes which have Idaho potatoes beat.... More

We had heard from other people that takeout ribs from here were disappointing. That did not fit the impression we have gotten about the food quality as we have eaten here many times but always in the dining area. Well, Oh Dennis! did not disappoint us. We ordered a full rack each along with a baked potato and coleslaw. The... More

Their ribs are phenomenal! If you love ribs, make sure you order the Full slab. You will be yearning for more if you only get the half slab... Service was great, as well. This was my first time and I will for sure be back!
