The owner of Mindy’s Ribs wants customers taken to a different time and place.

Decor of the fast casual barbecue joint — which has operating in Mokena since 1999 — oozes Americana, celebrating a time when babies boomed and soft drinks cost a nickel.

The food conjures memories of yesteryear, too.

Anchored by ribs, pulled pork, burgers and beef, the menu offers dishes that feel familiar — favorites customers can recall their uncles grilling up decades ago.
