My brother-in-law and his daughter raved about this place right down the street from Boulder's most eclectic avenue. There is a smoker out front to advertise the location, but it is just for show, only burning charcoal and blowing unpleasant non-barbecue scented smoke into the restaurant's wide open windows and doors occasionally. We ordered two large racks of the Illegal Ribs for the four of us, and ordered a few a la carte sides as well. Considering the ribs were over twenty bucks a rack I was a little surprised the sides weren't included, but whatever. The ribs were tender and well-cooked, but I felt the rub had completely burned off, only really enjoying the meat with the light or mild sauce we ordered with them. I didn't try the potato salad or cole slaw, but I seemed to be the only one the table who enjoyed the baked corn, which was cheesy and spicy and I happily finished. My niece ordered a slice of chocolate cinnamon cake, which was very large, but also very dry. The frosting was tasty, but dessert, like many of the details, is only an afterthought here.
