We had an early dinner at 5ish on a Thursday evening. Good service, good food not great food, easy enough to hear and be heard.

Although we had a bit of a time finding this restaurant it was well worth the search. The most succulent, tender and absolutely divine steak I have had in years. Perfection. Every bit delighted the palate. So delicious and juicy. And the Natalie Salad was the perfect accompaniment. Such a delicate dressing. So delicious. Oh my. Seek and find this... More

I love the chicken BBQ and the brisket is always very tender as well, busy in the evenings so go early or late.

Service was great and the food was delicious! They were prepared to go out of their way to fix our fussy daughter another meal if she didn't like the one she had but thankfully she did like it in the end. Will be back for sure when in anaheim.

You really can't expect much from a chain barbecue place but the special was burnt ends and I couldn't resist. They were advertised as Kansas City burnt ends, and I've had a lot of burnt ends in KC and these were a poor imitation. Charred, tough, almost unedible. Reasonbly priced menu, dinner and drinks for a couple is $75 and... More

we love this place. Our favorite are the beef ribs but the salads are great too. Not sure if they take reservations.

Food and service were super! This place has a nice atmosphere and great bar area. This would be a 5 star review but the beer for 22 ozs was $9.50. We had a wide range of food, from the brisket to two different salads and the vegan burger, all of the food was very good. The loaded baked potato was... More

We've eaten here as well at the Mission Viejo location a few times. This visit was to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We arrived on a Wednesday at about 5:30 and only had to wait for about 10 minutes before being seated. First off the parking stinks. There are limited spots available in front of the restaurant but if you get... More

6:30 PM on a Saturday night. The place was very busy and had a 30 minute wait. We were a party of two couples so we could try a number of different items. All the food we had - Pulled Pork, BBQ Ribs, Tri Tip, & Brisket were good, a bit pricey, but good. Service was good, not great, but... More
