We ordered a full rack to share between us and as delicious as they were the portion was so generous that we asked for a to go box and the ribs were just as delicious cold the next day!

I was in town visiting family for the weekend and they know how much of a BBQ fan I am. They have been telling me for the past 6 months about how good Purgatoire on Elm's Texas BBQ is. I had to give it a try and it did not disappoint. The meat was cooked to perfection and the sauce was to die for. I strongly urge any red-blooded meat eating American to stop on by for a meal.

We love visiting restaurants in converted historic places. The food was delicious. Portions were large. Staff was very friendly. We were all too full for dessert. Went on a Saturday night and enjoyed live music where the friendly owner even played the drums. We did not have to wait on a table on Saturday night which was nice. They had a bar but we did not partake, this time.

We love this restaurant. The atmosphere is perfect...the old train depot is a very neat setting. It's always clean and the service is great. We have been there for both lunch and dinner and all the items on the menu are delicious. We have nothing but good experiences here. Whether you just want to go in and just have a beer and appetizers or to have a glass a wine with a great 3 course meal, this is the place go. We especially enjoy Saturday night entertainment. Fun place. We definitely will keep on going. Great addition to Trinidad! :)

I had an excellent grilled chicken caesar salad. The chicken was grilled and shredded, the dressing may have been homemade. Live music on weekends.
