I went to Hungry Al's today, August 20th. I got the three piece pork rib lunch with their mixed BBQ sauce and potatoe salad for $6.50. The ribs were fairly large and the sauce was pretty good. It had a nice kick but still a little on the sweet side. But the meat wasn't impressive. They use oak wood and while oak makes great furniture, it's not a good wood to use to smoke ribs. The meat was kind of dry and while there was a smoke flavor, it would have been better if they used another type of wood to smoke the meat.

Even though it's the only real BBQ place in the area I wouldn't go back to Hungry Al's.
