Went here saturday for lunch. first problem looking at the outside menus, couldn't tell if ribs were available on the lunch or on the brunch menu....which was in force?... they were conflicting. I went inside and asked the hostess if they had ribs for lunch...she didn't know..picked up the same menu waisting time, and didn't know it .She SHOULD know!
after telling me no...she went, after my insistence and asked a server....it was on the chalk board as the lunch special...as a hostess she should know the specials and the menu.
The best thing about this place was the waiter bringing me a milk bottle with ice cold water and refills., as it was hot and humid. he was attentive on that. I ordered the lunch specail 1/2 rack ribs, which came with fries and a spinach salad...did not enjoy the house dressing on the salad, the fries were good but when I asked for ketchup, salt + pepper the server brought a 24" pepper mill and a 12" salt mill (which never worked) why don't you have salt and pepper on the table...YOU ARE A RESTAURANT! The ketchup never came. The ribs reheated were cold and dry . the two sauces placed in ramikens were both too overpowering, and I did not enjoy the rub on the ribs.
This place does not know how to cook BBQ...they are overcooked...I've been to many southern USA places where BBQ it's a science and they are always juicy not dry. but I guess this place is ok for the trendy "Roncy" credit card generation Y who really havent been exposed to REAL BBQ..sorry but won't be back
