Affordable food

This place was so affordable it's unreal. We stopped here for lunch and I'd say this place is a bargain. They also have gluten free options. I really like this place and the food hit the spot!

This establishment has been around a very long time due to its consistency and keeping it simple. Don't let the long line during the summer tourist season fool you, They really do move the line quick. They pride themselves on getting people in and out. It is not fancy fare but just really good food. Simple salad bar which has... More

Brooks is an o.k. casual restaurant. The ribs were all right, but I've had better. The salad bar was modest but fresh. I would return, but not for a special dinner. The service was fine. There's a senior menu, but the portions are smaller.

I ordered the chicken and pork with fries and onion rings. Wow no way could I eat it all! Home made bread, everything was good. Tender chicken, tasty pork. I will stop here again when I am in the area. Great friendly service also!

If anyone in your group has a food allergy, don't go to Brooks because they don't deal well with them. In fact I would say they really don't care. The waitress had a hard time answering questions about gluten. At desert time my nut allergic daughter wanted a scoop of ice cream but the waitress said she would not recommend... More

My wife & I stopped in just before 4:00 PM for an early dinner (and to beat the crowds) . We each had the BBQ Sampler dinner. She had hers with fries while I had the mixed veggies. The chicken was well seasoned and was very tasty. The ribs were fantastic. The brisket was dry, though. The roasted pork was... More

Ok food, I thought it was a bit pricy for what they offer, better bbq in the south. The dining area was congested and waiters were having to carry trays of food over our heads while we tried to eat.
