We eat here often and I have reviewed this before. But I like to re-review occasionally to keep the reviews current. The food quality is still great as well as the service.. It is a family/bar atmosphere with plenty of TV to watch. Kids are welcome and it is a good environment for a comfortable family meal at a reasonable... More

Steak salad was perfect. Excellent quality and $6.50 price was right. Best fried pickles we ever had. Good service, in old downtown Carrollton.

Wasn't sure what to expect when I got here by the name and appearance. Looks like a sports bar from the outside, but like a diner with a bar in the back on the inside. Service was average at best along with the food. Definitely not worth driving out of the way to eat here. from the our

We came for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was quite busy, almost all tables had customers, but we were waited on and served quite quickly and efficiently. The wait staff, even though they were busy, took their time with us and served us graciously. The food was fantastic and the burgers cooked to perfection. The table next to... More
