Get the sampler platter - comes with 4 types of meat and 4 sides of your choice. We really liked the brussel sprouts, okra fries, mac & cheese, and fries (seasoning on those were great!).

I travel a fair amount and I am always in search of good ribs. These were high quality pork ribs. The sides were great and service too.
