If you have never eaten at Smokin Jim's you are missing out. My mom and step dad went there, and they raved about it. I didn't think it could be all that good...boy was I wrong. They have the best, juciest ribs I have ever tasted. I used to love the ribs at a large company, but after tasting these...nothing else is better...nothing is even in the same league. They key is the way he cuts them, I believe he said. Not only is the food outstanding, the service is excellent. Every waitress that we've had has been great. In addition, Jim is always there, and it makes you feel at home. It looks like a "hole in the wall" but it is the best!!
They have the best fruits, veggies, and meat! Their produce cost less than any mainstream stores, and is way juicier. Their peaches, apricots, cherries, etc. are wonderful! Their prices are so reasonable. The meat is always yummy. On top of it all, the service is amazing. The cashiers are always friendly, and the people who work in the meat department go above and beyond their job. The only thing is it kind of smells sometimes.
I LOVE Dr. Ratleff. She did my first Pap Smear, and I felt so comfortable. I was a virgin at the time, and she was so gentle (I was so scared). I still don't love the whole getting it done, but she makes it doable. I still go to her, and did when I moved away as well. She is worth it!
