We enjoy the BBQ ribs and brisket. This location has a nostalgic past. The Banquet Room is in the historic Wassell Inn. This Inn is where we as teenagers danced the evening away to good old Rock and Roll, many year ago.

We all sampled different dishes and no one was disappointed. The smoked chicken and brisket were exceptional. The prices were very reasonable. The wait staff was friendly and very accommodating. When in town again, we will definitely be back.

We had a family birthday party with 15-20 people. Food was great, staff was very accommodating and had a banquet room available for our group with late notice. We plan on meeting regularly for family dinners at this fine establishment!!

Rick's has really good BBQ, but some of his dishes are a little overpriced. Taste wise, you will never be disappointed, just not enough on the plate or bowl on some orders.
