All around good

I'm never disappointed eating here. I come frequently for the Cowboy Killer Baked Potato with pulled pork BBQ, or the fried cod. It's a fun little restaurant with western décor.

Really great BBQ no matter beef, chicken, or pork. Food is fresh with a real touch of home cooking. Some may find it unusual but we loved it. A common touch with great service and great atmosphere.

We started with the large appetizer sampler plate, and everything tasted the same, overcooked, greasy and not fresh. Our entrees were no better.

To start the waitress was spacey and clueless about anything on the menu, which is fine and I attributed to her possibly being new. The food was TERRIBLE. We started with the sampler appetizer and the zucchini was rock hard, fries were undercooked, bacon was burned, and the cornbread was like eating sand paper. Between 3 steaks ordered medium two...

Had the BBQ Pork at a catered event we attended and it was most excellent. It was tender, tasty and delicious. The provided BBQ sauce and baked beans really set the meal off. I highly recommend them if you travel into the area.

Diane and I like BBQ and have eaten BBQ all over the US - Grumpy Jakes ribs rate very high on our list - moist and flavorful. They have a good selection of sides - the beans were super especially after we added some of their very good BBQ sauce. The place is clean and pretty nice - especially for... More

Don't need to change those jeans or T-shirts, just wash up and bring your friends for tasty Bar-B-Q and friendly servers in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. From pulled pork sandwiches to 1/3 lb. burgers you'll find you ate too much when you're done. We were happy to find that their fresh potato fries weren't sandpaper rough with salt. This place...
