We heard that the Gold Rush restaurant had a all you can eat Baby back ribs special on Tuesday nights for $21.99 so we decided to try it out. Their special include all you can eat ribs & choose two of 10 sides. We arrived just before 5 pm and the place was packed with locals who knew all about this great deal. We were promptly seated at the second to last open table and waited on by Joseph who brought us a frosty mug of their Gold Rush beer for 99 cents. Our ribs & sides came quickly and the ribs were delicious and tender. Our waiter was attentive and when we were ready for seconds Joe magically appeared. When we left there were many people waiting in line. This is a very popular place for locals. We spent $51 including 2 beers each & tip. We are planning to come again and bring our friends next time...but come early if you don't want to wait.

It is tradition that we go to Gold Rush the first night we arrive for our winter stay, and this year was no exception. The spare ribs were meaty and good as always; however, my wife felt hers were a bit overdone. She commented to the server about that, and he replaced them immediately with a fresh order of perfectly done ribs. The sides are always good and the service is outstanding.

We shared a full rack of delicious ribs that were so tender and tasty we didn't use their house sauces added. Fries, coleslaw and cornbread rounded out this meal..we ordered an extra cornbread so we each got one.
