“It's a dive, but the food is FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The place is a dive in the truest sense of the word, but the food is totally worth it. Service is friendly for the most part. Best ribs in Cincinnati and you've gotta try the Cajun potatoes.

“Best BBQ. Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

The place is a bit lacking on decor, but wow, do they make up for it with the food. The Cajun fried shrimp are the best. Especially when coupled with the baby back ribs. The baked beans are by far the best beans to be found. This is my family's favorite casual restaurant in town.

“Food is great, Service is terrible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2010

We love their ribs and sides but the service is soooo bad that we no longer go there to eat. Wait staff is rude, slow and will let you sit at a table (once you get one) far too long before being acknowledged. Fortunately they have a carry out which we now use exclusively. We used to take out of town friends there to eat but those days are over.
