Eat here occasionally. The food is always good, but seating and parking is limited. This restaurant is best for take-out.

My only mistake was getting a half rack of ribs instead of a full slab. Friendly, counteous staff; even asked me if I'd like some water as I waited. It was 98 outside and the water was well wanted. Fast service as the food was ready before I had finished the water. If ribs are your thing, this is the place for you. I've been here 6 times and never been disappointed. Its only gotten better.

We picked up a combination plate to share before going to a Roller Derby match last night. It was delightful. We shared a ribs/chicken combination plate with the corn (garlic-y heaven!) and the baked beans. Very wonderful.... Messy goodness.

Very good BBQ but best to eat out of the restaurant as takeout.
