Cuisines: American, Barbecue

The best smoked meats and St. Louis Ribs. Get the red sauce, I drink it by the cup. The coleslaw has the best dressing and don't forget to ask for the beans. They have great breakfasts too!

Been coming here since I was a kid; now I live in Alabama but when I'm in the area I've gotta stop and get some ribs! They're still as tender, juicy and delicious as ever. Tried the strawberry pie this time - it's yummy! Can't wait to try another kind next time!

Start with a garden salad (included with meal) - one of the best anywhere. Pork ribs were excellent as was my wife's Calif. Burger.

I have been visiting Emil Villa's for over thirty years! Now its quite a drive, but when I get that craving for smoked ribs there is no where else to go but Emil Villa's. Its very relaxed and nostalgic but the service is inviting and the ribs are to die for!!!
