First off, the wings here are AMAZING. As much as I love traditional, deep-fried buffalo wings, Grumpy's wings are smoked, and they are falling-off-the-bone tender. I always start off with a plate of these. It's just a no brainer.
Their barbecue is authentic and slow-smoked, and you can't go wrong. It isn't mixed with barbecue sauce, but you can add your own (they have their own house recipe barbecue sauce on the table in two different heat levels). I usually just put hot sauce on mine instead of barbecue sauce.
The ribs are another standout. Again, they're smoked, and they're very tender. The dry rub that they use has good flavor without overpowering the porky goodness of the ribs. You can add barbecue sauce if you want, but I think it drowns out the flavor of the ribs.
The atmosphere is fun and a little loud, but not in an annoying or contrived way like you'd find at a chain restaurant. The people here are genuinely enjoying themselves.
They have a great selection of draught beer.
I can't speak to the desserts--I never have any room for them.
I go here about every month or two, whenever I need a smoky barbecued meat fix.
