Hey lonjay123... you're not from around heah, are ya? (Seriously, I believe what you experienced was uncharacteristic of the Scoreboard, but you might be happier at a Tony Roma's - ask for the ""old combo"" with 2 beef ribs.)\r
The Scoreboard is loud, and usually crowded - don't plan on having a quiet conversation. Game nights are a blast, and while I'm not sure I'd wear ""enemy"" gear, If I did I wouldn't expect more than friendly ribbing (no pun intended). It is smoky, but the good kind, from the smoker (though they don't complain about cigars). And I had some of the best ribs I've ever had there - they load up the smoker at can't see so the ribs are ready for lunch, but they're at their best by dinner time. I've always found the staff friendly and helpful, if a bit harried at peak times. It's definitely on my list whenever I get to Nashville!\r
Other great ribs: Kojak's in South Tampa (closed Mondays) and Old South Barbecue, Smyrna, GA.
Pros: Great ribs and sides (slaw, beans; fried pickles, ...)
Cons: Usually crowded - come when you have the time
