Can't beat these ribs! They are NOT par-cooked like most other rib restaurants. From beginning to your plate they are cooked over a rotisserie. Luv 'em

I went here after hearing a lot of people talking about it. I will say our server, Alex was very nice and got the order correct. A person in our party is particular about whats on her salad. Well our server didn't miss a beat with the order. The chicken and fish are my favorite. I got the broasted chicken.... More

Perhaps this place is better for dinner than it is for lunch. I came during lunch hour on a Friday and although the restaurant wasn't overly busy, I found the service to be lacking. The Ruben sandwich was not good at all, overcooked meat, very little dressing, cheese or sauerkraut. The rye bread wasn't good either. The coleslaw was OK... More

Very large portions. Love the southwest chicken sandwich and the grilled steak pita. Service is typically quick. All in all one of the best lunch options in the area.

It is true that they give enormous portions but the food is not the best quality. I had a full rack of ribs and did not finish them. The ribs should have been more tender if they were truly slow cooked but these ribs were not. They were OK but not what I expected. I also ordered the home made... More

Glad we had a cooler - the food was terrific but the even half portions were huge. I can't imagine what the full portion would be. However, for good food for a wonderful price you can not beat this restaurant

I am a Nikola's broasted wing junkie arghhh and so much more on the menu that just is fantastic. Large portions of food, great sides, love their greens, salads and vegetables. They show you what you are getting on your carryouts before you carry out. Which by the way, call it in and ready in literally 15 minutes. Salmon is... More

Super food, great staff and huge portions. Unfortunately no room for desert. The prices were middle of the road but worth it because the meal was fantastic. Lovely bread but don't fill up on it, there is lots of good food coming! Highly recommend. Thanks Trip Advisor for the recommendation.

The food - including a fair variety of barbecue and "soul food" choices - was consistently pretty good, but never excellent. We had glasses of sangria, green salad, barbecued chicken and sliced pork, both in a somewhat vinegar-y barbecue sauce. Dessert was a pretty good chocolate spoon cake, a cousin to a flourless chocolate torte. It was all a step... More
