Each time I visit my folks we make it a point to order ribs for dinner. The best around and probably anywhere I've had them before. So glad I stopped one day and have been back several times!

I'm not usually one to stop at places like this as they tend to be expensive or lousy. This was an awesome change of pace as the food was great and the price was well within my comfort range. The new owners have stepped up the quality. This is one place you should give a try as I know I... More

Buyer beware. This place is a run down trailer parked along side of the highway. It was being run by a teenaged girl and her father who had raw meat sitting out by their fruit stand which is also on site. This is a health inspectors dream to visit this place.
