Ate here twice, the disco fries were good, ribs not so much. Both times the ribs were dry which was disappointing.

Food it really good. Nice sides. Sides so good, you could just order those and skip the main course. But don't. You would be missing a special treat.

Had a great meal with my family. The brisket was amazing. The problem now is that I will always be disappointed from now on when I order brisket.
