I was always meaning to stop here, as the main street goes around it on 2 sides, but never anywhere to park. Now the building is dark, and the sign on the door says for sale. They did have a real cool pink pig car.

So many "BBQ" joints are just generic. This place does smoke meat right. Rib tips and rib, both good, but definitely different from each other. Friday fiah fry was very good as well. Good beer list if you are into microbrews, if not $1 pbr...More

My husband and I thought the food was great. The music was really good, too. Unfortunately, there weren't a lot of customers. Hope they do well as this is the closest thing to an authentic rib shack we have in Madison. Give it a try!...More

We were the only customers. The croutons for the salad are advertised "homemade, " but they are not. I asked for a medium well burger. It is advertised with lettuce, onions, and tomatoes, but the burger arrived plain. And it was medium rare. I sent...More
