long periods of time over oak and hickory hardwoods, producing moist, bold, flavorful meats. You'll feel as though you've been brought back to a lost version of America. Our barbecue is the result of passion-driven cooks who have spent years around the fire pits perfecting the meats. The same passion applies to the long list of side dishes and desserts, giving a grandma's kitchen flavor to the whole place. We share this experience with each guest and a simple nod of approval from a satisfied customer is what it's all about.

Excellent Barbecue...
These things are worth travelling long distances to experience first hand-
Blue Ribbon is such a place.
You'll know you are close when you can smell meat smoking... With the exception of fresh bread, your nose was built specifically to inhale this odor... Breathe it in deep while you decide.
With luck, some of this scent will permeate your clothes and best of all... That part is free.
I dove in and sampled the pulled meats by ordering the sliders and 3 ribs... In retrospect, it might have been better to share, but then I would have had half as much to inhale.
Go to Blue Ribbon and eat way too much of the best barbecue north of the Mason Dixon.
