The back of the menu says it all...the recommend the ribs, the chicken, and their fry bread. This is a local hangout that doesn't disappoint

Went there for a quick bite and it was so great! Simple delicious BBQ. We got the sampler platter to split between 2 adults and a teenager and it was more than enough (we weren't super hungry to start with but it sure was satisfying!) as everyone else has said, the fry bread with honey was amazing. All the ribs... More

Four of us stopped here on a Sunday evening and ate out on the outdoor balcony. The food was good. Two of us had the buffet. We were late in the evening and some of the buffet items were a little dry, but they had a reasonable set of choices and it was well worth the money. Two others ordered... More

Thus restaurant was recommended to us by a nearby visitor information center. After a 30 minute wait we anticipated a great meal. Unfortunately, our food was mediocre at best. The broasted chicken was overcooked and very dry. My daughter enjoyed the pizza, but the rest of us left highly disappointed with our meal.

Especially good was the brisket, fry bread and salad. When we go back that's what I'll order. I thought the BBQ sauce was the weakest link which they unfortunately drowned the baby back ribs in. We found out later about the dry rub. Live and learn. Overall a nice, friendly experience we will definitely return to.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local person. It primarily serves BBQ type food although there is also pizza. It is a popular place as we had to wait to get seated. Our food was fine but the restaurant is quite noisy and conversation was a little difficult at times. Good outdoor seating on a patio overlooking the... More

Long wait was unexpected but everyone loves this place. Family had ribs and loved them. I liked my chicken. Iced tea was good. Flat bread was excellent! Servers worked very hard and were great!

OMG!! If you like KFC well move over, cause this place is 100X better!!! This roasted/fried chicken was the best thing I ever tasted. Friendly staff and priced just right. You can't be on a diet & come here as everything is too delicious to pass up! Oh and the strawberry daiquiri was the best I've had in a long... More

We ordered a pizza to go and it only took 20 minutes. The pizza was fresh and tasty. The sauce was very good! Staff was friendly. It's a funky restaurant that was jam packed. We might have to try dine in next time. They have a dedicated "to go" counter which was very handy. We were personally walked over to... More
