Cannon's Rib Express Restaurant Review

: Cannon's is located in a New Seasons parking lot on a busy street with seating limited to a few tables and chairs where you can watch the cars go by. Because of this ultra-casual atmosphere, most diners order take out. But eating on-site is a valid option. Pork and beef ribs are the best choices, but chicken or a chopped pork sandwich are also available. Customize your favorite meat by choosing your desired heat level for the "secret sauce" --- hot, medium or mild. The small sides are pretty much an afterthought, but indulge your dessert cravings and top off your meal with house-made peach cobbler or creamy banana pudding. Jazz musicians occasionally entertain diners.
