Ordered the rib plate, ribs were fatty, dried out and burned up. Got the end slice of cornbread, potato salad was ok, baked beans were out of a can. I won't be back.

The food and prices are average. It’s not the best bbq in town but it’s not the worst. For the taste of food this place is hit or miss. Someday dry, others wet and others just nasty. I don’t know if they have different cooks...More
