“OMG RIBS!!”

Great little place that smokes it's own ribs. Had the Grand Rib dinner and loved it. Everything was perfect. Will make this my place for ribs in Tampa.

“to die for!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Small and cozy place with flawless and friendly service!
According to the movie on their website they prepare the dishes hours before (obviously for slow roasted ribs!) and they serve it in a blink of an eye!
baked beans and coleslaw a too sweet - as well as the apple cake (but maybe that is my European tongue).
The ribs were heavenly! Pity that I order the pulled pork as well, which was very good, but hands down the ribs are finger-lickingly good!
