If your looking for burgers and ribs then this is your place! Plenty of burger choices. Everyone's menu choices were delicious. It's not "special" or "unique" but good food served well.

Good, big burgers with average chips and an oversized milkshake. Excellent comfort food. Don't expect a slow meal, it's on your plate before you know it!
