We picked up a huge order-chicken, ribs, Mac and all the fixins. The place has a unique feel as well as outstanding ribs this side of the ohia river. I would recommend a stop at this BBQ pit, especially after bowling a strike next door.

BBQ Revue has ok food but the atmosphere, service, and all the other pieces are not good. If you go here, get take out.
