Expected to be impressed because of the publicity,but was not. The meat was dry and the sauces were vinegar.Have had good barbeque in Alabama, and have had good barbeque when old Pop Bishop was alive ,but this is nothing special.

This was the first time I was back in town and could not actually eat at the restaurant. Instead, we ordered two slabs of ribs to be picked up. We placed the order the day before for pick up at 11:00. I guess I was the only one with an order, because when I showed they had it ready for... More
