Servers are very friendly but slow! The ribs are well worth the price and sitting in the heat was worth it! I love love love this place!

“Great food!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I thought the food was excellent at this restaurant - the service was just okay. There were a few times we asked for something and the waiter completely forgot to bring it. We had 2 little kids with us so I was happy for a kids menu and a high chair - both are very accomodating.

“Best ribs in town”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Ribs are the best in town. Go for the sting potatoes they are very tasty.
We went there a couple of times. The only negative is that the waiting to get a table is very long. Guess that we are not the only one that like the ribs. Price is not too expensive. We are a party of 5, so we're always looking for restaurants that are not too pricey, but serve good food.

“mmmm....Ribs”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Ok....so this is traditional ribs/chicken sort of fare...but it keeps us coming back every year.

This time there were only two of us so we got their sampler for two dinner. It was enough for our dinner and our lunch the next day.

The ribs are terrific. The half chicken has this yummy sweet sauce on it that is truly unique. Pulled pork was tender and had just the right amount of sauce.

The staff is always busy, but you never have to look for them...they are always close at hand.

If you are looking for a quick in and out (less than an hour) with good food, this is an easy answer. They have lots of tables, so we never make a reservation, though I have seen a line later in the evening...but never very long.
