We had an evening meal in the restaurant and decide to give the Ribs a go. This was a great choice and the Ribs were some of the best I have ever tasted.

We ordered lightly here because the prices were a bit high for a BBQ restaurant (though others may not agree.) The food was delicious and we got special attention from the server because it was our first time there.

We had eaten here while traveling last summer, and we couldn't wait to get back and eat there again. The barbecue is excellent, and the staff did a great job. We look forward to stopping there on future trips.

I am from the south and figured that this would be a good taste of down home. Sad to say it was far from the expectation the sign gave us.
