    At Famous Dave's, we like to get the Feast for 2 - all served on what looks like a metal garbage can lid.

    Feast for 2
    1/2 slab St. Louis-Style Spareribs, choice of Flame-Kissed or BBQ 1/2 chicken, either Texas Beef Brisket or Georgia Pork, Creamy Coleslaw, Famous Fries, Wilbur Beans, Sweet Corn and Corn Bread Muffins. Served family-style for 2-3 people.

    (4170-4200 Cal. 2) $38.99

    I'm convinced it's a Korean mafia front, haha. It's been there for decades at this point, and I never even see cars in the parking lot.
    Like the Phantom Fireworks place on Mall Road. Always open—only a couple cars. (With the exception of this next upcoming week.)

    No love for Cheddars ? I like their ribs and the outdoor seating area.

    Not from me. The food is ok. But Cheddars might be the most boring, plain, and basic chain restaurant in the country.

    Ribs are great for the price.

    Mexican -- Acapulco (has two locations). Camino Real was my favorite but they closed when the economy went south in mid 2000's.

    Asian -- Mai Thai

    Buffet -- Golden Corral (just kidding)

    That place is a complete mystery. I have been expecting them to close for years... or maybe open because it always seems like it's closed. A couple of times the parking lot was full. This is out of the 24 years I've lived here. I do know two different couples who have actually eaten there. I need to ask them more about their experience.

    I tried Momma's BBQ for the first time for lunch yesterday. Since I'd never been there before I got three sliders and a couple of wings so I could sample a bit.

    The smoked sausage slider was amazing, the pulled pork slider was really good but nothing special as far as pulled pork goes. I'm a big meatloaf fan, but I was underwhelmed with the smoked meatloaf slider. The smoked meatloaf at Mission BBQ is way better in my opinion, only problem is that they only serve it as a monthly special one month a year (usually around November)

    The wings at this place however, our out of this world. I really loved the dry rub that they use. Next time I will likely forgo the other forms of BBQ and just load up on a bunch of wings.

    The sausage was also my favorite. I recall using spicy mustard with it. The wings are so good.

    Sorry, I can't find the location in Florence on-line, where is Momma's exactly in Florence?

    Thanks.
