We got seated quickly and our order was a feast for two. Includes coleslaw, beans, fries, two big chicken breasts, four ribs, pulled pork, two small corn cobs, four slice's of garlic bread all for $29.95. We found the food good and the service courteous.

The staff at this restaurant are extremely rude and unprofessional. Stay away if you are looking for good service. We never got to try the food, because the hostess and waitress was too bad to withstand our stay.More

7 of us enjoyed our meals. BBQ ribs were off the bone and with the right amount of sauce. Burgers look and taste nice. Service was prompt and a friendly waitress kept checking on us. Not the best food on earth but quite acceptable.

Not my favorite place to eat but good if you need a quick meal. They have daily specials and the food is reasonably priced.

Ok the quality and service has been slipping at this location the last couple times we have stopped in. This visit was no exception as well. In their defense the lunch rush was busy and the credit card communication link was down, but that should...More
