Great ribs! I like them sweet/mild (I know, I'm a sissy). You get plenty of meat as well as sauce. If you think you'll have room, add a piece of sugar cream pie to your order. Heaven!

My sister and I make special trips across town to get this delicious Food. The ribs and the tips are always tender and juicy. The sauce is awesome. The sides are the best. We can't wait to go again.
