We were given this recommendation by a local. We went on a Saturday mid afternoon. Greeted quickly & seated immediately. Our server explained the menu & gave her recommendations. My husband their ribs-fall off the bone. I ordered the kale salad-filling & wholesome. We killed the onion ring appetizers. Their cotton candy dessert towers over the table-the taste is typically-...

We arrived around 6:45 pm on a Tuesday and the place was not hugely busy. But it took an extremely long time for anyone to take our order, then a long time to get drinks, then more time for bread. We were there almost an hour before our food arrived. It was tasty and the portions were large. And the... More

It took over 30 minutes to get fries as We wanted to get my toddler settled. Drinks were slow and taking our order was even slower. After numerous reminders of the fries... More

We left my Ipad by accident and the manager stayed late in order for me to come back and get it because I... More

We had to make a 6:00 reservation, because no other times were available. We arrived at 6, to find a totally empty restaurant. Go figure! We ordered a round of cocktails, only to find out they didn't know how to make a dry Grey Goose martini. We then switched to wine. The meals were so disappointing, we thought there were... More

Great ranch style design of the restaurant with many cowboy themes. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere of the place. Its located next to universal studios entrance and exit.
