We ate there for lunch. I had the strawberry/apple/pecan salad, which was delicious, but nothing can top the loaded potato skins!!! We even got a free consult from Kevin on where to go in Idaho. Friendly staff, good food and quick service. We'll be back...

Went with my Husband for a date night. We had a great time. My Husband had the 3 meat combo it was great, but the chicken was so tiny it was as small as a quail thigh and leg . I always enjoy the Brisket salad. Love the food ..

DoctorCompRhet offers another reader-oriented review. This popular barbecue place--one in a small chain in some Western states--is located on the edge of a large mall on the outskirts of Boise (and close to the airport). It's walkable from several chain hotels, including the excellent Oxford Suites (5 minutes by foot--see my separate review). The entrance opens on to a spacious... More

Really great for families with kids as the place is big with a loud atmosphere. Food was good, service was good. I would go back.

Great BBQ, ambiance and service. Being from Texas originally thought it would not measure up, but it certainly did. Highly recommend.

Decent BBQ place, a bit on the spendy side. Several other restaurants in the area that are better with better customer service Nice ambiance, though.
