Great Biker Destination- Beautiful Riding Country

They have a great outdoor seating area that showcases live music on occasion, the food is fantastic... read more

We visit this place on a regular basis and we've tried most of the menu items, all of which are very good it's the service that is what is bringing this review down. Some nights the staff has been excellent some nights the staff has been terrible. This establishment is for sale and I hope the future owners will fix... More

We decided to stop here while passing through town. My boyfriend LOVES BBQ so we were excited it give it a try. My boyfriend ordered the 3 meat plate. He chose the brisket, pulled pork, and the ribs, it also came with two sides and corn bread. When it arrived, it actually came with Texas Toast. The pulled pork was... More

We were in a group of seven, three were small kids. We didn't order anything that should take a long time. Chicken basket, hamburger and a brisket sandwich. Our food took twenty minutes longer than anyone else at our time. In fact most were done eating by the our food arrived. Other people that ordered at other tables after us... More

4 of us stopped here late Sunday in Sept. expecting to have their brisket but they were out because of a biker ride hitting them earlier. So we opted for their burger special, pulled pork casadias and smoked wings. Also tried their funnel cake fingers... Service was great, but we were one of two tables. The food was average. We...

We have visited this place two times, and we were happy both times. All you can eat fish on Friday,was good. Have had the $5 basket special two times, I love the pulled pork sandwich, hubby had the brisket sandwich very happy with both. Home made chips alone are worth the trip. Interesting atmosphere, good service. I have a feeling... More

Stopped by on a Sunday night on the way home from Galena. The place was very quiet which meant the wait staff was very attentive. We ordered pulled pork sandwiches - definitely some of the best we have ever had!! Decor is great, too. Would go here again :)

We went on a Sunday for an early dinner. The location is perfect for people driving from the Chicago area to Galena or vice versa. The atmosphere is terrific, and it's a great place for families. The food was very good. I especially liked the fried pickles, the fried okra, and the BBQ chicken. There were three sauces to choose... More

By far the tastiest Beef Brisket I've ever had. 3 difference sauces. I had half and half beef brisket and pulled pork. I could have had 3 meats, and added the baby back ribs, but the portions are huge. The atmosphere is a fun western style saloon, tastfully decorated with ample size. They have a stage for entertainment with plenty... More
