“Top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Never a disappointment. Very friendly staff, quick service, great food. Love the chops and like going to breakfast there. Wife loves the pulled porked and barbequed chicken, Kids love just about everything. Good location to LRT and on the way to downtown for Twins, Wolves and Vikings games. Easy in and out along Hiawatha.

Half way beetween MSP airport and downtonwn Mpls on light-rail line..about 30 minute train ride from DT, at 50th Street Station. Fabulous, free, Minnehaha Park is across the street, and worth a peruse!

“The Only Place to Go for Ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I have often told the owner that Caps' ribs are better than the famous BBQ chain nearby. Their food is consistently way above average and the portions are enough to enjoy another day. I happen to love leftovers. Service is good and the menu will satisfy any culinary taste. While all of their offerings are excellent, I am almost always seduced by their amazing ribs. Enjoy!

“Eat Here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012 via mobile

If you want a quick simple meal this is the place to go. There's not much to the menu, but what they do have is worth the money.

“Love the BBQ here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Being a "local" I've been here quite a few times. The actual restaurant isn't that much to look at but the food really makes up for it. if you eat in the food is served on big trays and take out is packaged up tight. The ribs and pulled pork are wonderful! A couple of "unique" items for here are the BBQ Salmon and Pork Chop. The salmon has a tasty maple glaze on it while the pork chop is thick, meaty, tender and juicy. It's sooo good! Lately I"ve been ordering the Chop/Rib combo when I go there. The sides are good too, yummy beans and steak fries. They have tater salad during the summer months too. While I haven' tried them the burgers look really good. Prices are reasonable too.
