Good Homestyle food!

I've come here mostly for breakfast and lunch. When they cook Fajitas it's hard to breathe in the restaurant. Their pies are AMAZING. The service is good.

I'm here at least twice a month for business. Service is spotty. Breakfast is the better choice on the menu.

This place has been in Campbell for like 40 years, same location. They do BBQ right. Shout out to our server Casey, he is a fun one! And now to the repast: The baby backs? Tender, savory rub, juicy, fall off the bone, the mild smokey flavor is what BBQ dreams are made of. My side was a cold crisp... More

Enjoyed the small portion of BBQ ribs. BBQ sauce was flavorful, but not out of control. Service could have been a bit more attentive - I needed a beverage refill for a while. Portions are big - couldn't finish even the small 'rack'.

They used to serve large Barbecue sandwiches but not any longer. Ordered and was still hungry after I ate. Lots of bread small amount of meat. Looking for a great barbecue place. It seems like restrants are cutting back on amounts they give you but rising the cost. If any one knows a great place let me know.

Went there to be with friends for a Christmas get-together. It's the Christmas Season so the only time available was for Brunch. It worked out wonderfully. The food was very good and plentiful, good serving size. The waitress took good care of us. She was able to handle the large group, served us timely and knew when to join in... More

My family has been eating Sunday breakfast at least twice a month here for the last five years. They have a large area in the back with movable tables and chairs that can accommodate parties up to 60 guests. The omelets are large and delicious. They make a chili verde omelet that I love. Their biscuits and gravy and chicken... More

Good ribs and BBQ sauce. I like to try different meats with the sauce and great to dip french fries into. Sides are OK as well. Service though is lacking.

Full slab of ribs was ultra-meaty and not drowned in BBQ sauce. Ribs have a great smoked taste. Some might not like the lack of BBQ sauce on the ribs, but I'd rather dip my my own. These ribs are served dry with a side of sauce. Kid's-size ribs order is perfect for an 11-year-old. The six-year-old loved the cheese... More
