    My husband and I went on Friday after work, which was what we were told was the opening. It was just the bar opening with some basic bar appetizers. I really was put off by the lack of service, but I am willing to give them another shot. I work nearby, so we're going to get take out from there this week in order to judge based on food alone.

      So I got a pulled pork sandwich yesterday from Rick's, and I wasn't impressed at all. The meat was tough, the sauce too sweet, and I don't like slaw on my pulled pork. Fries were really good though, and for $6 it wasn't a bad deal. I'm disappointed they don't have brisket sandwiches, but I will give them another go to try their brisket dinner next time.

      Great Place. Best ribs in Providence blows Wes's out of the water. Burgers also good. Didn't go to opening night but frequent for the bar and eat about twice a week. Great prices on beer and food. Haven't tried the pulled pork sand but I will next time.

        "blows Wes's out of the water" ... not saying much there
