“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

We ate here and was pleasantly surprised. We both ordered the pork sandwich and I am really not a fan of slaw on my pork but there slaw is a vinegar and oil and works well with their sandwiches. We also ordered the tamales. These were to die for. The staff was friendly and service was quick.

“if you love your ribs...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Unpretentious, generous, delicious and easy on the pocket. Doesn't get much better than that. Our eyes proved to be bigger than our stomachs and we continued to enjoy our "doggie bags" in the wee hours of the morning (after a evening of blues downtown).

“Terrible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Obviously nearly closing time, I just wish they had turned us away! Everything was rushed it was obvious they wanted to close up and go they got the orders wrong and we really couldn't be bothered to tell them, they even turned away a party of 6 who arrived about two minutes after us! My suggestion is get there early maybe you will have a good experience as it came highly reccomended to us.

“Worst BBQ ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went out of our way because we heard Abe's was great. Boy were we disappointed! Service was the worst ever! Abe's sandwich indelible! Waitress offered no help when we were disappointed. Needless to say we will never be back!
