“Nice low key rib joint”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Not all fancy like all the nearby chain restaurants, but the ribs were hot and tasty. Used to come here all the time years ago, and it was nice to come back.

“ugh..”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Went to the Bloomfield location and it was bad. Burnt ends had no flavor and seemed boiled and reheaated. Pork sampler had tiny piece of cornbread and no butter. Pulled pork was OK but too fatty. Pork ribs were edible - but that's it ordered a beer with lime and lime was dried out and seemed to have already Been used. Much better BBQ in next town over

“Bad taste my mouth”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Admitedly, I don't like BBQ but we went tonight because my husband does. His food was dry and needed sauce. My food literally left a bad taste in my mouth. Meat is not my thing, so I ordered the Frech Onion soup and a Garden salad. The soup was unlike anything I have ever eaten, seasoned in a most unplesant way; I ate the cheese off the top and left the rest. The salad first arrived without the advertised onion rings, and when they were added, they were cold and greasy. Bacon bits? I had a hard time finding (or tasting) any! It was a blah salad of iceberg lettuce and cuke slices. Why can't restautants offer a palatable alternative to non-meat loving people?? The waitress was very friendly but couldn't seem to get anything right on the first try, not even the iced tea. We will not be returning.

“Horrible food and filthy”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Save your $$$$. Food was served very cold, ribs were fatty, pavement by the door cracked, ladies do not wear heels if patronizing that horrible joint. I will certainly not make a 2nd trip. Table next to mine was sending food back.
