We visited at lunch time. They were kind of busy, but we still received fantastic service. Our server successfully managed to be attentive without being intrusive. That's not always easy to do. They have a very nice menu; lots of options with something for everyone. I had the spinach salad with Greek dressing and it truly was one of the... More

This was recomme ded by our hotel. Excellent! More food than you could possibly eat. We had the ribs & chicken. 12-bone delicous pork ribs with 2 pieces of chicken. We chose side salad and hashbrowns. Comes with a very large piece of garlic bread. You definitely get your money's worth. Service was also very good. Definitely recommend.

I concur with the other reviewers. The portions were huge and the prices was perfect. We had a party of 8. All ordered something different from the catfish to the BBQ combos to the fried jumbo chicken wings and everyone was satisfied. Most of the sides tasted fantastic, especially the greens. Me and my husband will definitely be back.

This was such an excellent restaurant specializing in BBQ. They had a lot of specialty drinks in the menu and the one I got with peach puree, ice cream and amaretto was awesome! The portions are huge and the price was very reasonable.

The options ( ribs, shrimp, pork chops, fish, chicken breasts, & scallops) only $22.00 for any 3.--plus 1 hot side & one cold side dish.---all of us had plenty to eat with some leftover.... More

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
