Easily my favorite lunch spot in Lexington. Sweet tea and appetizer of chicken tenders/sauce is a great starter. My personal favorite salad of any restaurant is their house salad with hot honey mustard/bacon dressing. (House Dressing) Be sure and try the potato soup to accompany your appetizer and salad. Lunch for two will cost about $27. Plenty of parking, staff... More

We were tired and needed an eatery close to our hotel. This was .5 miles away. Very busy for a week nite, always a good sign. Seated right away. Server was smiling, funny, and more than attentive. Potato soup was great, prime rib really good, ribeye yummy, and chicken Alfredo good. The garlic cheesy bread could have had the cheese... More

Our waiter seemed to be still learning the job. It is on par with, or slightly below, TGIFs. I'd rather they offer slightly bigger portions (and a slightly bigger price would be fine). Very limited beer selection (nothing local or unusual).

The service here was terrible. I don't usually complain about places but I have never had service this bad.

Local inexpensive spot. Friendly staff. Unfortunately, food and decor were uninspiring, minimal imagination. Went twice - food didn't improve....

Have eaten here multiple times and its delicious every time. Steaks are wonderful and their chicken fingers are top notch. But their chicken finger salad is a showstopper. Especially paired with the HMHB dressing. The ranch is also very tasty but I recommend the HMHB to anyone.

Four of us dined here when we were stuck for 2 days due to ice storm. Everyone had a great diner and my ribs were excellent. Friendly staff and very convenient to I-75 hotels.

The service is the best, food is great, try the prime rib with steak seasoning. Prices are very reasonable. The Manager and Employees take pride in the service that is given. One of the best restaurants in Hamburg.

This is a burger/BBQ joint close to I-75/I-64 and US 60, and the location (just off Sir Barton Way) is about the best part of the restaurant from my point of view. We stopped in on a road trip. Although the the service was prompt and friendly, the menu offers what you would expect from a chain restaurant that specializes... More
