Ate here once before 2 years ago and thought it was ok. We went back again because visiting a relative who enjoys this place. Much better food this time! A little more than wanted to spend on lunch but ordered a combo so side and fountain drink included. The pulled pork was excellent and just soaked-up the BBQ sauce. I... More

Don't let the appearance fool you, this place serves up really good BBQ with large portions. Brisket is pretty much made to order depending on if you prefer the lean or moist cut, and the ribs are very tender. Staff is friendly and helpful as well.

Exceptionally great food. My favorites are beef ribs, pork ribs, gumbo, baked potatoes, chicken. Breakfast taquitos are also wonderful. Great Sirius blues music, large screen TV's. Order at the counter. Perfect setup, excellent food.

Hard to find beef ribs anymore - It's Ribs has them! Sold by the pound, with each rib approx. 1/2 pound. Meat was very tender, with good bark. Not sauced, which is how I like BBQ - if I want sauce, I'll put it on. Like eating a steak on a bone. Green beans were very tasty & well seasoned.... More

The Brisket was tasteless. It had no color or flavor. It had a lot of fat. It appeared to be bulk meat from the Grocery Store, that had been heated and sliced. I won't go back there again. the service was slow and the waitress did not seem to know the menu items.

I have eaten there a number of times and found the barbecue very good. Chopped beef is quality, ribs very good as is the brisket. Last time I tried it the gumbo had lots of okra pieces in it - not a fan of that. They are very nice, but not really in touch with their customers sometimes. When people... More

Ribs & pulled pork great. Mac & cheese wonderful. Coleslaw lots of taste. Will be back. They have huge baked potatoes with everything on it. Really good with pulled pork or brisket. Lots of butter & sour cream. Can't say enough how good it was.
