We have always had good ribs here but know some that haven't. Pacers in our area also has riblets that are very good. It takes awhile to get seated even if not busy. A little expensive. We only go when we have a coupon.

Very large menu but everything we ordered was good. We ate here twice during the weekend and were not disappointed. The ambiance was good and the bartenders on top of things. It is a good choice.

This is the best BBQ restaurant around. I travel half a hour just to eat there. The baby back ribs fall off the bone. So tender even without the sauce.
