Not as it was previously!

Let me start by saying that we have been eating here for years, and have always enjoyed it. A few days ago we brought my visiting cousin for lunch there. I had told her how wonderful the bbq was. I asked the waitress if the corn that day was fresh or frozen, she said " fresh", so I ordered it... read more

It used to be, in the words of Tony the Tiger, G-R-E-A-T, but now it stinks!!! I have to fill up 100 characters or TripAdvisor will not post my review. Aha! Did it!

I visited this place, probably for the last time. It seems like the food is not fresh, just reheated and served days later. Everything is over priced for the quality and or quanity that your receive. I hope that this helps. Best- Riley

The restaurant is a little hole in the wall, so no need to get all dressed up. The service is just okay, nothing to brag about. The prices... More

Huge portions of bbq! I don't care to eat there, but getting food to go is good compromise. The french fries are great!

It started off wrong when my family of 5 sat at a table that had a sign saying for parties of 6 or more by mistake. Our server Donna waited quite a while to come over and then said oh I thought you had someone else coming and pointed out the sign. We asked if we should move she said... More
