My husband and I enjoyed a lunch special. Very good food, as usual. We were there at 12:30 and lots of people in for their lunches. We had the St St. Louis style ribs and traditional chicken wings and split the meal.

We went for a late lunch/ early dinner. It took a while for our server to come then was a while before we got our drinks. When the food arrived it was good as usual. Just not the best customer service this visit
