Was excited to get ribs from Jim's, but when we got them home there was hardly any meat on them, dry, and hardly any sauce. Cole Slaw was good. It was $46 for the ribs, mac and cheese and cole slaw.

We recently called in a large carry-out order for a family gathering. Every meal came as ordered and the food was delicious. The ribs were cooked to perfection and the sides were excellent. The portions were hearty, with almost everyone having leftovers.
