Great turkey ribs with a nice BBQ sauce. Slaw wasn't that great but my family really liked the rib tips.

To begin I tried to call order in phone stayed busy, got there ordered food had a 20-30 minute wait. Only good thing about the meal was the sauce and fries. The rib tips was cooked to fast, so they were tough to chew. So I am still looking for a good rib joint.

Visited the i57 in western Ave 9 February 14. Waited over twenty minutes for a half slab. Ribs were tough, I was very disappointed. No favor other than the sauce which was ok. Its amazing to me that the rib joints don't favor their meat. I won't return. Ribs unlimited on 79 and loomis was much better.

I love their ribs. Are they very slow? Yes. Is the place dirty and at times dangerous? Of course! Can you call your order in with the confidence that it will be there waiting for you? Fuggedaboutit. WIl it clog your arteries? Yep. Is it 'down home' good? Absolutely. Take out only. You definitely wouldn't even think about eating there... More

Like the links, the ribs and tips aren't bad, but they have the obnoxious policy of not allowing you to order the ribs without sauce.

I have been to this place several times. They continue to get worse in food and service. Now they give you half the food for the same price. I won't be back again/
