Huffman's was once great but now only punch drunk

This place used to be good up until the early 1990s. Now, the food is barely edible. They put gobs of BBQ sauce on the meat to hide the fact that there is little to no smoke taste to it. Then the prices are too high. Magnolia’s is a block away and has the same prices and it is a nice sitdown restaurant.

Huffmans still exists only for the nostalgia. It was once the best rib joint in town. Today, everybody knows the best is Phils BBQ. Huffmans is not even close.

As for the staff, they are ridiculous. I heard one cashier make a comment about hoe she hopes its stays slow so she will not have to work. Well, I hope she gets her wish and it is so slow that she can take a permanent vacation!

BBQ pork ribs

Ribs bascially just cheap meat with lots of sauce to hid ethe lack of BBQ taste.

Sweet potatoes (yams) were black, not orange!

Mac and cheese was okay but obviously microwaved!
