This restaurant was listed in Sunset Magazines top 10 barbecue places in the West that include Colorado, New Mexico, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and California. So, we had a try. It was pretty good but not awesome. Perhaps we are not really big bbq connoisseurs. I had the 1/2 rack of baby back ribs with sweet potato fries and sauteed greens. My boyfriend ordered the full rack of baby back ribs with creamed corn and cole slaw. It's a lot of food. one of the waiters delivered to our table an order of fried pickles and we were puzzled. Turned out they were for the table next to us. I asked if they were any good and they said it was delightful. I guess one of these days I should try them. I've and the fried green tomatoes before at a different restaurant and found them surprisingly good. As far as the ribs go, I enjoyed them. The meat fell right off the bone.
