Ordered 1/2 slab ribs. Was given the short end. The long end was saved for the help. Fries were hot. Sauce was too vinegar base I shall not return. Will continue to search for a good rib place in Waco, Texas

We stopped in to get baked potatoes to go for a light supper. Everything looked good with butter, cheese, and sour cream however when we get home we discovered the potatoes were under baked and quite crunchy. We were unable to eat them.

I expected so much more. Ok brisket, with a lot of fat, non-smokey turkey, and greasy spare ribs. Sides are cafeteria fare, with the potatoes right out of the box. Alright for a quick semi-expensive bite.
