Seems weird to call this place a cafe as the name states it to be. It's a barbecue joint - why would you call it a cafe? Anyhow, I came across here when I needed to get dinner really quick before going to see a movie with Duc. We found out that it is literally down the street from where I work so we stopped by based off of Yelp reviews. It had a nice atmosphere to it. I didn't have my camera with me so used my phone for my snap of our plate (sorry for the poor quality).

We shared a plate of the beef ribs and pulled pork which came with sides of coleslaw and baked beans. Typical barbecue fare indeed! It came with yummy garlic bread. I found the pulled pork to be pretty decent and the sides good, especially the baked beans. As for the ribs themselves, I haven't had beef ribs before so I don't know if it was because it was beef or just because of the cooking but I was disappointed that the meat didn't peel easily away from the bone. It was just okay ribs and sauce. Unfortunately, I've lived in "the South" for a while and have also visited St. Louis for ribs so perhaps it's unfair. Since I haven't had many ribs here in Orange County, I don't have a good comparison point; it was fair though. It made us full enough. I'd like to come back for their lunch specials and other types of ribs before overjudging!
