The feel here is of a roadhouse. The food is awesome, and the ribs are to die for! Must stop when in Racine, seriously!

The food is a 10 out of 10, for sure, but this restaurant has its faults. It is actually quite racist from what I've heard and experienced. They've purposely messed up people in my groups orders and they were all the black people. Not bringing their drinks they ordered. White people... no problem, how bow dah? I guess they are... More

I've been going here for close to 20 years. By far best pork ribs you will have in Wisconsin or even Midwest. Atmosphere is as close to a roadhouse as you can imagine, nearly no lights other than neon. I will admit, although they are known for ribs...I usually get steak or the seafood on special. This place is a... More

Long story short; waited a really long time for our food (50 minutes after we ordered) had to get it to go because our ten month old was ready for bed. Waitress did not apologize at all, came home to find out I had been charged $6.50 for sauteed mushrooms!! The real problem with Oh Dennis is there is not... More

Worth waiting go a table. This is a hole in the wall venue that delivers great ribs, steaks, pork fries. Plastic plates. Simple decor. Probably bad for general health. But very good. No frills. Great servers. Go and enjoy

Oh Dennis has the most outstanding Ribs! We live about 1 & 1/2 hrs away and totally worth the drive! If your lucky enough to be there on a night they have Banana cake take a slice home! It's wonderful! Get there early the place gets packed fast and they don't take reservations.

This is what I refer as an above dive restaurant. The ribs are OK, but they are not going win a rib cook off....the pork chop and filets are quality.....salads are fresh and crisp....best blue cheese dressing around...you can buy to take home. Deserts are meh....nothing super. Serving everything on paper plates is pathetic. The son of the original owner... More

While the building doesn't look like much, the food is outstanding. That is why they don't take reservations, it is first come first seated and worth the wait when you have to. The ribs are the very best as well is everything else, and don't forget to take some of the home made BBQ sauce home with you. Open for... More

They have combo plates so you can have ribs with a steak or "pig chops". Great bar, terrific food casual atmosphere. Come on in and be impressed! If the food is so... More
