    Potato casserole. I haven't had one this good since the original IngerDahl's was razed to the ground. I'd eat this by the quart.

    Potato casserole + ribs + burnt ends sandwich = best combo ever. I ate at this place during a road trip from Michigan to California. It was right along the way, and only a couple minutes from the I-80

    Was terrified at first sight of my burnt ends sandwich--large cubes of meat that I was sure would wear out my jaw long before I could finish it. I couldn't have been more wrong. Tender and tasty.

    If you need to feed a small group, make it easy and order the whole pit. Has all the meats and 3 pints of sides. Says it will feed 4-6 ppl, but that's very hungry people so be prepared for leftovers
