Love all the food.

They have great service and delicious food at unbelievable prices. Talk about getting your money's worth. Invite a group of 7 friends and the bill was amazingly low and we were super full.

I go every week now. I can't do without it. Just go for the chicken. There is no atmosphere, but close your eyes as you savor this incredible chicken with plenty of hot sauce Enjoy
