We had the ribs.. Scored 7 out of 10 points. Corn was sauggy...but the pie was absolutely the best. I will buy a whole before leaving town

Stopped by for ribs because we'd had their yummy brisket at the 2nd annual Blues, Brews & BBQ at Inn of the Mountain Gods. Bought ribs, Pork shoulders and sides. Ribs were mouth watering and finger licking good. Roasted red potatoes and coleslaw also excellent....More
