We popped in to Smokin' Joe's Ribhouse for some ribs. We each ordered the baby backs and, unfortunately, as the service was very slow, our ribs arrived tepid. Would give this place a miss.

I love BBQ...so I am always ready to try a new BBQ place. Smokin Joe's was VERY good...but it just didn't make the bump to great. The sides were great...the meat was great...but the sauce was just very good. I like a little sweeter sauce.
