Had the ribs. They were fall-off-the bone and delicious. Also order the mac-n-cheese and greens as sides. Both had nice flavor and texture. The environment was very welcoming and relaxing; the service was excellent.

I know it's a thought choice on this street for picking a restaurant, however, wagon bones has parking which made this any easy decision and boy it was a great decision. Some of the best brisket I have ever had!!!
