Good stuff

Consistently one of the best places in town. Can't go wrong with the ribs or grilled chicken. Just know that it's a local favorite, and there's almost always a wait in the evenings.

All items on the menu that are so good that I often have difficulty choosing which one to have for dinner.

Recommended by the Hampton Inn as a local favorite, it was a good meal and reasonably priced. The steaks were excellent cuts and truthfully, we could have split the meal.

Honey dipped chicken was wonderful, as was the rib sandwich. Beverage prices reasonable and good selection of sides. First order had cold fries so they replaced with whole basket of hot ones..they wanted to please.

Delicious baby back ribs, the barbecue sauce was sweet with just a little bite. We ordered them with french fries, house salad and hush puppies. There were enough ribs for the two of us to share. It's a very busy place, we went on a Sunday afternoon, and they had a 30 minute wait. We ended up placing a to... More

I loved the way the place was decorated. My beef tips were very good and my husband really enjoyed his baby back ribs. Our server was very attentive. I'm glad we arrived early because the place filled up fast.

Went for lunch and found nothing special about the place, after hearing praises from others. The menu and prices for lunch were average. The food itself was average. Server was friendly. Not putting it on a weekly to go list. Just expected more. Maybe dinner would be better, but the lunch could be gotten at any CHAIN restaurant.

My husband and I have been here several times this fall and winter. I meet him there after work, so it is a little early for the usual dinner crowd. Our first time there at this time in the evening we discovered they have an early bird menu for $8.00. I've had the popcorn shrimp many times and the catfish,... More
