We were expecting excellent ribs from the reviews that talked about the ribs melting off the bone. Ribs were good, but a bit tough by our standards. And we found the price for the ribs slightly high. Service was very prompt.

The shrimp appetizer was very good. For the main course had the ribs they were tender and fell off the bone. The hot sauce on the table had spicy kick. Normally I don’t taste heat but this stuff was amazing and spicy.

You need to wait in line for a short while, but it's well worth. A wide selection of tasty meat-based platters served in very generous portions. Service is very good and fast.

Don't get it. Usually crowded so it must be me but prices are ridiculous and food mediocre at the very most. Returned to double check. Yes not very good
