Very casual, good service, very good pulled pork with 2 sides. Not crowded when we went - early evening. No AC, only open windows & fans, which might be a problem for some.

Found out from of the locals that for now Wed nights are $1 rib night. What else can I say, excellent beer on tap and excellent $1 ribs. Beware that the ribs are twice as expensive on other nights.
