Love what this franchise offers. Ribs, pork, chicken, and sausage, turkey. I prefer any combination with ribs in a two or three meat meal. The ribs taste like smoked ham. They aren't fall off the bone but are great . my favorite side is baked beans. Staff is very friendly and the building is handicapped accessible. This is one of my too carry out chains very inexpensive.

I had the ribs, smoke BBQ beans, cheesy potatoes and corned bread. It was absolutely delicious! We were immediately greeted and seated upon arrival. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. I definitely recommend!
