There's a bit of a wait if you go around 7 but the food is worth it. There is something for everyone; beef, chicken, pork etc. The ribs are the best on the menu. I love that I can purchase the BBQ sauce before I leave. It is a treat for me as I live several hours away.

Ordered the rib sampler with sweet potato fries and salad. The corn bread was dried like a rock but whatever, the ribs were tasty. Fine for fast food !

After 35 minutes a friend of mine complained and the hostess managed to seat our party in two different areas.... parents at one area and children in another. We were served... More

Not much went well Our server didn't know we were seated in her section, so we didn't see her for 10 mins, despite the place not being busy I ordered ribs, and they were ok, but the mashed potatoes were cool, as were the beans The cornbread, an old family favorite of my childhood, was very disappointing; room temperature, and...

Always a wait on a Saturday, but they took our name and phone number and let us know by text. Our wait time was only half of what they said and we were seated. The atmosphere was good and the kids enjoyed themselves. Food was good and the service was too. It's not the best, but it was good.
