very close to our hotel - get there early because they don't take reservations. If you're willing to eat at the bar rather than a table, you may be seated more quickly.

Came across this restaurant one day and it was busy and looked good so we came back for dinner. Very glad we did as food was great and service just as good. Clean and well presented restaurant and staff. Ribs tasted really good and they are not stingy on portions. Fast service too and drinks not overly priced.

We came at 22:30 last night and were told that the wait was an hour at least. Went over to the bar across the street and were called in at 23:00! So happy. We ordered the mixed ribs - amazing choice. With a side of baked potato, also great. The two of us shared one order of each and didn't... More

Service is great, ribs are to die for, best since I moved from the US 11 years ago. My wife had a steak that was so full of flavour. Small place with limited seating so I would imagine it is best to book a table.

If you like meat, this is the place to come. Friendly waiters and delicious ribs. Remember the portion is huge and do consider the sharing else you won't able to finish. The only things the restaurant is rather small and no reservation and walk in to get your waitlist. The owner will ask you to walk opposite bar to wait... More

The ribs. Get the ribs. Did I say get the ribs yet? Seriously people...get the ribs. I grew up in the southeastern US where good ribs are a bit of thing, but these here might be the best ribs I have ever eaten. Now..stop what you are doing and go eat the ribs.

The quality of the meat/ribs is pretty good. But when you factor in an hour and a half wait for a table, a rude waiter and lack of side dishes it's not one in a lifetime as some other reviews claim.. I would highly recommend, just not at peak times or if you are in a rush.

I'm not sure what the rib hype is about but I can tell you that the Lamb is fabulous. With all of the reviews about the ribs, I asked my wife if she would be ok splitting the ribs and the lamb. Although she is not a huge red meat eater, she agreed. I got the lamb and she the... More

What are you kidding me?!? Nice enough waitstaff and ambience, but these are 100% AVERAGE ribs. My standards are reasonably high, but come on, any place that is touted as having the best spare ribs in the country should serve up some ribs that fall off the bone. Flavor is okay, especially for the smoked ribs, but the meat was... More

Looks like a homey restaurant first. The wait was long, and for a moment I was surprised that people had been waiting so long that there were lists of dozens of people. But after I went into the restaurant I understood why, the service is excellent, the food - much better than just good and can be defined as excellent.... More
