We got ribs to go, but the little bit I saw of the place made me wish we had dined in. The ribs were just fantastic! Skip the wings, they ended up being basically chicken nuggets in sauce!

We ordered a dinner for two for 3 kids... my husband and I still had to help after ordering our own BBQ country roasted chicken dinners. We rarely eat like this so consider this a real treat. The dinner for two is a great sampler. The restaurant is a fun atmosphere. The service was friendly.

Stopped in on a Friday night and the wait wasn't bad. Always love FD's brisket and burn ends and this one exceeded expectations. Huge portions!!!!

The baby back ribs I ordered and the salmon my wife ordered were both over-cooked and dried out. We were there after 7pm, so maybe they were part of food made for the earlier dinner rush, but at the same time the restaurant was still pretty full.

The photo taken is what you receive when you order the Manhandler Beef Brisket Sandwich. It is priced at 11.95. It comes on a breadbun the type of which are 0.99 for a dozen at any supermarket and had 3 slices of beef that did not cover the surface plus three pickles. Be warned. They know you are holiday trade... More
