Luscious bbq, the old fashioned smoker kind of bbq. Go for the combo. The sides are well portioned. Family friendly atmosphere. Fun place to eat. Easy parking. Easy access.

I'm particularly fond of the BBQ chicken dinner. Hubby loves the baby back ribs. Their sweet tea is just right, and their Cole slaw is delicious. Their garlic toast comes with every meal, and is really good, too. Our friends usually get the pork steak...More

Very ordinary place. Nothing great. One of the sides is Mott's applesauce (seriously?) We were there with a large group. Service was okay, but not outstanding. Kids menu is fried, fried, fried. We left full, but not very satisfied.

The food is bland and the service is slow. The prices are average. The staff is very friendly but we're very confused during our visit.

This restaurant practices portion control, so the menu items are overpriced. If you order garlic toast as a side item by itself, you get 3 slices, BUT if you order garlic toast with your meal you get 1 slice. Service was mediocre, bordering on indifferent....More
