We stopped in for some ribs and had a very tasty meal. I also enjoyed the deserts they offer as well as the lemonade. You can eat inside or enjoy patio dining. The lady who took our order us was very helpful, as well.

It was very good! Authentic home coming, just like Grandma made it! The pork ribs were tender, the greens (with a little cabbage in it) and potato salad like a yummy Sunday dinner! Definitely worth trying it!

In the early 90's, I was lost in Riverside and needed lunch. I found a small BBQ shop, with phenomenal food. The sauce is robust, not too sweet. Years later, I was at the Riverside Convention Center and walked down Main Street. A familiar aroma...More
