Always a good choice. D&K have been in business for several decades & have always done a very good business. The line at the door precedes their reputation & gives you a good idea that it is worth the wait!!

Fall off the bone ribs are what you come for. Don't be put off by building or location of this place. Ribs with special home made sauce are outstanding. Cash only - could be problem if you are not prepared.

Family run business. Always great service and great food. Ribs are my favorite meal, but steaks and chicken are wonderful too.

This place has been around for many years. I'm sure it has the same decor as it did when it was build. You are served a relish tray with your meal. The food is good, but I personally don't care for their BBQ sauce. The...More
