was there for ribs/brisket . They were out of brisket on a Sunday night! and the ribs were really really poor. Poor quality meat and drenched in some kind of "smoke sauce". Sadly, while Dougie's isn't what it used to be, their ribs are far superior
just always order with any sauce/marinade left on the side, and you'll be fine. I don't know where you got the impression it was going "downhill" but whatever. every place gets mixed reviews no matter how good it is.
