Good food, nice people

Went there for a late lunch and got their version of a chicken Caesar salad. It was very big and very good. I highly recommend it.

Food was good. You order at the counter and then pick it up. Plenty of room to eat in the restaurant. I had the combination platter with three meats. It was $19.99 and comes with a choice of two sides. I chose the coleslaw and the baked beans. They were both good. The Tri Tip was very good and had... More

Average strip mall restaurant. Staff not very knowledgable about what they were serving. Order and pickup from counter. Burger meat not listed or priced as grass fed but staff after asking around finally claimed it was. When asked if they had a smoker, several of the staff had no idea or didn't know what one was. Finally claimed they did... More

I have read many reviews of this small Ptown deli/restuarant, and was disappointed. The BBQ tritip sandwich was more well done then medium rare, MR is what I prefer. My business associate suggested I say something, so I went back to the counter. I will admit that I had taken 3-4 bites on the sandwich. The person behind the counter... More

5 of us went in one evening for dinner because the restaurant next door (Sweet Tomatoes) that we planned to go in was so packed we could not wait that long. This place had many empty tables and just a few customers. This was a concern for us right off that bat. You order at the counter and then sit... More

This place makes fabulous tri tip. I usually get their tri tip platter and a side of rolls, make a sandwich of them. Their bbq is very good too. It's a nice place to go to for a quick grub.

The food is good here but we ran into one problem. We wanted to buy the family meal (we were a family of 5) and although there was plenty of seating they said we couldn't eat it in their restaurant unless we bought everything individually. It cost about $10 more that way. Made no sense at all! Make sure you... More

We had some food delivered, choosing the tri tip sandwich as they were out of ribs. The meat was kind of tasteless for BBQ...I think it needs more of something to spice it up. We will try the ribs next time (if they have them). I do like the idea that they have a delivery service here.

Food east alright but I wouldn't go back again. I had a dinner salad that was alright but the dressing was very bland. My son's sandwich was just average. Price was reasonable but I think we got less than what we paid for.
