This place seems to just keep going downhill. We ate there yesterday during 'seniors lunch' that saves you a little over a buck a plate and comes with a drink. It was indeed nice not to have to dodge unruly, unsupervised children as is the...More

I eat here several times a month. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Seems like they are always out of chicken. Must be a popular item. Last time I was there, they had baby back ribs and they were very tasty. I was surprised. They used to...More

We used to love this place when it was in Blue Springs, MO. Then they shut it down and moved to Independence to a larger building. We walked in the other day and were almost repulsed with the clientele. In our family we always try...More
