Go on a Wednesday night for a ribs only menu. 12 different sauces. Meat falls off the bones and melts in your month. A true neighborhood bistro. You'll always see someone you know. I've had ribs all over the country. None better than these. Nough'...More

We heard about this restaurant through the grapevine and decided to try it for ourselves. We were greeted warmly by the owner, and loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Our dinner of veal parm and shrimp scampi was delicious, and we plan on returning soon.

The food is pretty good and very popular on ribs night. Decent level of service. Drinks are expensive especially if you like a glass of decent wine with dinner. You pay more for 2 drinks than the meal itself.
