“Bring a scale”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2011

Went today in the rain. (Foolish me). No parking, wrong phone nbr on website (several websites), and prices are NOT CURRENT. To top it off, after ordering ONE POUND of rib tips for the (new) higher price, I only rec'd 13 oz. It is really bad in this economy when you can't even get what you paid for. I only gave two stars because the service was friendly. The food AT BEST was okay. Spicy sauce was not bad, the rib tips were just okay (noting to write home about) and the bavarian potato salad was also just okay. Definitely was not worth the gas to make the trip.

“This place rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2007

This one of the really good bar b que joints on the West Coast. Their
beef ribs are surely the eighth deadly sin and the pork isn't far behind. The sides are also stellar and if you don't like the spicy extra sauce, then you probably belong at the Denny's down the road.
