My wife and I have been going to this place for years and the food is always good. The service is pretty good, especially if you tend to go in off peak hours. They do have among the best tritip in the county.

Waitress was very friendly and attended to our every request. Was seated in a comfortable table and the atmosphere was awesome. I had the four beef ribs and they were the bomb. I don't think I left anything on the bones for the dogs.
