I travel a lot up and down the east coast, I have eaten bbq all over, and also love to cook bbq. This was simply woeful! I ordered Short Ribs which turned out to be a half slab of spare ribs. I was ok with that, figured must be thier term for a half slab. The ribs Cleary were cooked somewhere indie past, I mean probably not that day. No visible seasoning, rub or anything like that, no smoke or wood flavor at all, they had to be cooked in an oven or something. They were just totally tasteless. I took 1 bite of the coleslaw and a couple bites of the beans and was done! The only reason for the 1 star was the bbq sauce which I drowned the ribs in (thank goodness) I found this place on the YP search, ishould have went with my gut feeling when I walked in where you order from a. Loses patio and there were hundreds of dead beetles? Some times the dives have some great food, just did not happen here for sure. They have a picture on the wall of being voted best ribs in 2000, wow, wonder what happened win then....or who was doing the voting. Time to take the sign down.

The shredded pork shoulder is absolutely fantastic, tender, tasty, with exactly the right slightly-vinegary, all-delicious flavor -- the barbecue sauce available on the side is good in small quantities, and eye-watering in large quantities (though still good). The beef ribs are very good, smoky, slightly chewy, and lightly sauced.
We found the side dishes unexceptional--baked beans were ""as-expected,"" the cole slaw not so good, turnip greens were OK, and potato salad was OK. We didn't try the cornbread or pinto beans.
Overall -- highly recommended for the barbecue.

This Bar-B-Que is the best i have ever put in my mouth. It has just the right amount of spices and it's tender that it just melts in you mouth. I never knew what really good food was until I had Cantrells. I wish they had more locations so that no matter where the Navy sent me I could always have Cantrells. To the owners thank you for making the perfect Bar-B-Que sandwich. It gives me something else to look forward to when i go home.
