  • Ribs-They were tender enough to eat without struggle, and had ample bark but were just slightly dry for my liking. I liked the fact that the ribs were served with a toasted hoagie bun.  I ate about half of the meat right off the bones and pulled the rest off, sandwiching it between the hoagie roll with sauce and slaw, making a sort of bbq rib sandwich-good stuff and fun to eat.
  • Shoulder on BBQ Nachos-Was topped tender white meat, but lacked the flavorful bits of crusty exterior bark.


  • Ribs-The ribs were smoky and reminiscent of competition-style ribs with a nice wood-smoked flavor.
  • Shoulder on BBQ Nachos-Unlike the smoky ribs, the pork shoulder lacked any discernable smoke flavor.

Sauce-The server was kind to inform us of the two sauces on our table, explaining that one was sweet and the other mild.  They seemed to me more like hot and mild, the mild being the sweeter of the two.  I enjoyed the flavor combinations of both sauces, but Angelica and I agreed that they both seemed a bit watered down, not in consistency, but in flavor.  It seemed that the combination of ingredients worked well together to create a good flavor, just not intense or robust enough for my taste.

Slaw-The mayonnaise-based slaw was slightly vinegary, crunchy and well-complimented the barbecued meat.
