D-E-Licious – I am from Memphis TN. Once I have gotten a taste of Dwight's sauce I was sold. There wasn't much of a smoke flavor, but the sauce mask the need for that. I have to have Dwight's Ribs at least once a week.

Great BBQ; mac n cheese is amazing – Great BBQ with a lot of meat. The sauce is a good mix of hot and sweet. The mac n cheese is great, and I know mac n cheese. The service was quick and the price was reasonable.

Not great for the waistline, but oh, the comfort that lies within. – In Short
Dwight's pork ribs are beyond reproach - seared on the outside and tender at the bone. The beef ribs are succulent and flavorful, if a little fatty. Perhaps this is like complaining if the sky is blue. Save room for side dishes like candied yams, collards and a truly superior mac and cheese that combines Longhorn cheddar, sharp cheddar and parmesan.

This is great barbeque – Dwight's is only one of two places that has great barbeque for this area. It's not Chicago or Kansas City, but it's the best I have had here. The ribs are tender, and the price is right. I highly recommend the potato salad....it is to die for!!!!!!!!!! The ambience is perfect - it's a barbeque joint in the inner city and it's take out only. THAT is a barbeque joint!!!!!!!!

Sauce Put's Dwight's Over the Top – There's so much smoke in the place you're barely able to see. This aides in whetting your appetite, hut also burns your eyes and makes your clothes smell like barbecue.

I tried ordering both pork and beef, but they were OUT of beef that night. We got two pork sandwiches, a full slab of pork ribs, and the mac and cheese.

Don't expect the sandwich to be a sandwich- it was simply the pork short ribs with two pieces of bread.

The sauce is in a league of its own. Get the hot- it's sweet, a little spicy, and just the right consistency. It's a suprisingly complex flavor, everything's perfectly balanced so one complements the other. The meat was good, some parts a little tough- but tender overall.

The mac and cheese is ok. It did have a distinctly subtle flavor to it.

Good stuff – Great food and believe it or not, great service too, something you don't always get at popular restaurants.

So Good – This is some of the best Bar-B-Q, I've had. Good healthy portions, beef that just fall off the bones. And let's not forget the sauce, that I put on everything.

Riyibs – I'm originally from Texas so I can get a bit uppity about my ribs. Dwight's ribs are amazing. Def best north of the Mason Dixon and East of Chicago. I was a bit disappointed in the mac and cheese but I'll be coming back for the meat.

Maybe I won't cook tonight – The ribs are delicious and tasty. The service is quick.
