Good food, however you are only as good as the crew. I ordered the fried chicken salad 1st time and was fantastic. The second time I ordered the same thing but the person taking the order was distracted and gave me baked instead- was not great- just ok. But I will probably live another five minutes or so because of... More

We eat here occasionally with 2 kids. They have kids eat free on Monday, otherwise value is a little low for quality. They have BBQ and chicken - grilled, fried, or pulled. I usually get the chicken and it can be tough sometimes. The sauce selection is good, I like the variety. The restaurant is always clean and quiet, it's... More

I went once and got the ribs. They were hard and chewy with fair flavor. I'm not going back

I had the lunch special. I had to ask if they were open because there was literally nobody in the place when I walked in! After I was seated, people did start to come in, but this was around 2:30PM so it was a late lunch. The food was good. My lunch special came with 5 ribs and 2 sides.... More

Visited a few times, but think it's average. In my opinion, this is way better than Rib Crib.
