Group of 11 including kids had a fun time but the food was only average. Service was very good. Atmosphere was fun. Ribs were OK, Brisket was OK, wings were good, fries were average and salad was average. Go for the fun.

We had a great meal at Fox Bros. To be fair I might have given a 5 if the pork belly burnt ends were good. Will start with the only negative. The pork belly burnt ends were a joke. They were not good at all....More
