It was ok but we won't go back. We will continue our search for good BBQ. We are from Texas so maybe we are expecting too much here. Flavor was a bit bland and lots of fat on the ribs.

We ordered take out and they put our individual names on our to-go boxes for us to identify. That is a first I have seen any restaurant do. Kudos !!! And of course the barbecue stuff was lip-smacking.
