This place has been serving food here for at least 32 years. I went here as a kid, food is like I remember. Breasted chicken and fries is what I liked most.

Met friends yesterday. We drive 30 minutes to this place. The waitress Daja was great. Generous portions. Great food. Need to go early. Place is always busy.

Absolutely the best BBQ ribs anywhere. No par boil/cook here. All rotisserie from beginning to your plate. Enjoy.

Great service with so so good. I got the chicken drummys and they were over cooked - should have sent them back and had a new order made. The salad was fresh and really good.

If you like fall off the bone ribs, this place is it. The ribs are absolutely delicious. Great choice of sides. Service is superb. Server checks often for drink refills. Quickly brought us extra napkins too.
