If you like barbecue then you’ll like this place. Nothing fancy. But decent food. Tables aren’t the cleanest.

Their ribs are really good! They fall right off the bone, too! Flavor is good as well. They have daily specials that sound great! This was our second visit and we are pleased.

The ribs are fantastic. I love the spicy pepper sauce they offer, its sure to clear out your sinuses. I've never eaten at the location but takeout is always very easy to arrange.
