Was it worth the drive to Camp 31?

I can tell you the wait staff are great, and after almost 2 hours on the road the beer (Horseshoe Lager) was nice and cold, even served in chilled glasses. The ribs (and that's was the purpose of the trip) were good, not great. The five members of our group were pleased not amazed, as one said "all this way and i am not even taking any home, what does that say?". The meat fell away from the bone with little effort and had a sweet smokey flavour. The first rack was big and juicy, my friend said her's had too much sauce I would have to agree. The second half rack was as good but two of the orders were boarder line burnt.The sides were not very good at all, the beans (which come with the ribs) were as good as you would get if you opened the tin in the asile of the store they were bought in. The fries were greasy and not nearly crisp enough, the slaw was room temp and the corn bread was cookie cutter mix like. Was it worth the drive? I am glad we did it. Would I drive 2 hours to eat at the camp again, not a chance. If you are in the area, it is well worth stopping in and enjoying the atmosphere and the ribs, hold off on the sides and leave more room for the ribs....ribboy
