I believe these are slow cooked for a very long time. To say were not done just means you do not know anything about ribs. If you wish to leave a bad review, know what you are reviewing.

Cannot answer all the questions, however there is an enclosed room to the left of the bar. I would guess it would do for up to 50 people. The best thing to do would be to call them. They open about 11 am.
