We visited for lunch. The bbq nachos weren't bad but the boneless wings were awful! Tasted like they were fried in old oil. My husband thought the brisket tasted like cigarette smoke. The baked beans needed seasoning... Tasted like van de camps brand that hadn't...More

I usually get the sliced smoked brisket but most everything is amazing. Brisket Nachos are to die for and on top of that the staff is excellent. Is a frequent lunch stop of mine and my family's.
