The atmosphere is very pleasant, the food was excellent and the whole meal served on a garbage can lid was really fun.

We were surprised by this, good ribs good service, and the sample platter was top grade. We went back again before the trip was over.

Walked to the restaurant from our hotel. We had good food - ribs. The service was very nice and just the right amount of attentiveness. The place was casual but very nice. Would definitively go back and highly recommend it.

Always good food. Service was excellent. Very enjoyable dining while traveling. We shared a rack of ribs and still had leftovers. We're very experienced barbeque eaters and this place never disappoints. Beer was cold too.

We had supper following a long day of driving. We shared a full rack of back ribs between two of us. The ribs were tasty, however they seemed a bit overcooked (dry). The service was good, the atmosphere nice.
