    Can't decide on ribs,brisket? Get The Three Kings 1/3 Rack Memphis Ribs, Beef Brisket & 1/4 Free Range Chicken. It's a delicious way to make the choice easier.

    One of the best BBQ places I've been too! If you're looking to eat a lot of meat AKA gain mass AKA get HUGE - I highly recommend this place for post-workout.

    Ribs were not at all fall off the bone. Mac n cheese was waaaay overcooked and the cheese sauce was broken. Yuck. We threw away most of our food. The best part of our $40 meal was the fast delivery...

    We love the famous "hybrid" style of Baby Blues - Memphis-style ribs with a sauce that hails from North Carolina. Plus it's even better when enjoyed with a Trumer!
