This casual restaurant is always crowded because it has terrific BBQ at a reasonable cost. The ribs are great, but so are the chicken wings and sides.

We had to wait almost an hour for a table. Very popular place. We found out why once we tasted the bbq - delicious. Waiter was friendly, telling jokes - fun atmosphere. Everything we ordered was good. Worth a visit!
