I am graduating next week and i wanted to go to a classy restaurant that has outstanding ribs. Anyone have any ideas?

    Usually classy and BBQ dont go together. However this topic has been debated to death. Try a search for BBQ and you will have more info then you could ever want.

      Classy and BBQ, there is only one answer; Blue Smoke. There is slightly better BBQ but for classy there is only one answer.

        Second Blue Smoke but definitely make a reservation. It's very popular.

            Classy enough for a graduation celebration?

              So Blue Smoke would be best? I was thinking maybe i should forget about BBQ and find some place more upscale. It will look kind of weird with my whole family dressed up while the rest of the people in the restaurant are dressed casually.

        Funny you should ask, We went to blue smoke for my son's graduation. They were wonderful to us and it was a great celebration. We booked in advance. I suggest you do the same if you go.
