For calling several days ahead for a group of 25 we were all a little surprised to only have one waitress helping our group. Drinks took 30 minutes to get and food took about 45 minutes after that. The food was good and the server was friendly. In fact the sides were all fantastic, however, the ribs had very little meat on them. What little meat they did have had a great flavor but there was honestly about a teaspoon full of meat on each one. The down point of the evening was finding out that an automatic gratuity was added to the checks since we were a large group. We did not have a problem with this as it is standard for a group, however, the gratuity was not shown on the bills so several members of our group double tipped. Quicker service and more meat on the ribs without sketchy billing and this place could be amazing.

Went to this restaurant last night with my hubby. Our waitress Melanie was very friendly and gave us great service. The BBQ was excellent and the mashed potatoes were delicious. Highly recommend checking this place out.

Service was good, friendly. Bbq was good, tastey & not dry. The curly fries were made out of potato skins and were really greasy (don't get them if you think you're getting Arby type fries). Ordered the deep fried pickles, got a large serving but didn't eat many because they were super salty. Overall, not a bad place to eat. Oh, and they have a trunk of toys for kids to play with to pass time, which was great for my 5 year old.

This restaurant is OK as long as you don't order ribs. Ribs were tuff and stuck to the bone. I prefer ribs to fall off the bone when eaten. The rest of the food was good. Though being a family restaurant, I prefer not to sit next to a toy box with young kids playing on the floor in the dining area. I have no problem with kids but not on the floor next to my table. The play area needs to be in an area of it's own.

It's not the worst, but it's ok for a decent meal. To be honest, really not impressed with their bbq offerings. The sauce is pretty much tasteless. When you live in New York City and you get better tasting pulled pork from a corner deli, something's not being done right.
