Delicious ribs! Get the mixed combo, which gives you a taste of everything: bbq, original, and a slightly spicy sauce. So good. We got a little tired of the usual restaurant spots on the island and came here for an order of the full rack with 2 sides (baked potato and cole slaw) to go. The cole slaw was just... More

Got the three different ribs plate, expecting a hearty meal of three half-racks. In actuality, the ribs were tiny, about 1/3 the size of typical baby back ribs I've had on the island. Not sure where they get such small ribs...or if they were even pork ribs. Can say however that the were very tender and quite tasty, but have... More

This place is a little hard to find. But once you find it it's a gold mine. The ribs are extremely delicious and suculent. The sphere is great and the service is fast. You can even get take out here! The ribs are finger licking good. Each time I visit the island I always go dining here.

Situated on a not too charming location this place serves the best ribs I've ever had. Great flavours, cooked to perfection. Try the combination with the lomito; it's really great!

Cut to the chase- friends told me this place was great, and I being a native Memphian and self appointed USA traveling and tasting BBQ officianado, was skeptical to say the least. Well I'm here to say this is the best ribs I have had, anywhere including my beloved Southern states-sorry Dreamland, Shack and Rendezvous. Once may be a fluke... More

We ordered the rib mix. It's a mix of the 3 tastes bbq , original and hot. It was really really good. You can scrape the flesh off the bones with only your fork. It's so soft and tasteful. A great place and not expensive. Take the Cajun fries, they taste like potatoe wedges. Garlic bread is the one you... More

Unbelievable good ribs at an exceptionally good price. Good service. Ask for extra cole slaw the servings of cole slaw can be small & the cole slaw is quite good.
