They had a $5 lunch special. It had two ribs and a baked potato. It was delicious! The atmosphere was great! The service was excellent and everyone was helpful.

If you want DEAD ribs this is the place to go. I have been here many times and as the years go by the food goes down in quality. If you want really good ribs go down the street to DEXTER BBQ. Better quality meat and much better service.

We both had the BBQ ribs. They had great flavor but were a little dried out and tuff. Seems that happens alot as a local told me he always ask for the second plate he would get when he sends the first back.

The BBQ Ribs are top notch. I dry rub seasoning and a great vinegar based sauce has been a draw to travelers for years. Our town is known for these ribs. But HINT: Don't miss the BBQ Pork and BBQ Beef Sandwiches. Fantastic! Onions Rings are homemade and excellent as well.

My once a year family dinner was 12-23-16 and Angela did such a horrible job, she took forever to get drink orders and then got an atitude with me when I didn't order soda. We had to ask several times for a kids drink for my daughter Angela didn't bring until after the main food was being passed. My husband... More
