The smoked chicken wings and ribs were delicious. Melted in my mouth. Wished I had more than a tablespoon of potato salad..it tasted good, but that's all I had was a taste. They served it in a very small sauce bowl. The greens tasted like they were canned or the frozen commercial kind, but not fresh..otherwise, we really enjoyed the... More

My friend went for the great ribs, but I had to try the Fried Green Tomatoes (with blue cheese, lump crab meat and balsamic reduction). I love the movie, so when I saw this on the menu (as a northerner visiting) I was surprised that there was really such a dish. I loved it!.

The above title says it all. Our group of diners, 12 of us, enjoyed the meal bet were unable to carry on a decent conversation because of the noise level. We were also frustrated by the delay in getting our dishes to the table.

I'm accustomed to the spice of Louisiana food. This meal, however, left my tastebuds uncooperative. After hearing great things about this location, I was extremely disappointed when the food didn't live up to its reputation. The environment is fun & friendly. All but one of the waiters acted snobby & too busy (laughing with the other staff at the front... More

Recommended by our hotel. Very reasonable prices, really good food-great ribs, greens and carrot dish. Rather busy for a Tuesday night and a bit noisy but great service. Would definitely go back again!

If you want real good BBQ ribs and a fantastic steak this place has it. A Baton Rouge favorite for years. The ribs are great and the steaks are great. If you have room for desert, they have a great selection.

A couple of budget-priced margaritas may have helped, but we found the restaurant to be a relaxing \, yet busy place to eat. The ribs were good, but the prices were more than reasonable and service was quick. This place is not the most unique rib place but was good enough that we will eat there again.

Great as always. Husband had baby back ribs there were awesome. We went to the one on seigen lane. Both places are great. Oh the baked beans and loaded potatoes are superb. I would recommend to anyone and I do.
