We are a franchise so all of the side recipes are prepared and shipped prior. We do prepare, marinate, and smoke all of our meats in the store. I'm sorry if you were disappointed. Thanks for your feedback!

We had the rib dinner and it was delicious!! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were staying across the street and didn't feel like driving to a restaurant. Glad we didn't. The spinach was so good. Highly recommend!
