We made the right choice for dinner that evening. After checking into our motel we made a beeline to this restaurant after seeing it on our way to check in. It was late evening, and we had travel long and far since breakfast without stopping for a meal. We had one of these at our home area, but for some... More

We walked in and were warmly & promptly greeted. The manager walked by and welcomed us once we were seated. Sarah, our server, was awesome. She was very friendly, made several suggestions, refilled drinks promptly, and is a great asset to this location. We shared a sandwich and had chocolate cake/ice cream. The sandwich was Ok, the FF's and dessert... More

Very friendly waiters and waitresses and the food was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. It is more than barbeque on their menu

Four of us dined here and each ordered different items. The pulled pork was a huge hit with my friend, I enjoyed the salmon - even though the portion size was small. The kids meal included macaroni and cheese and this had a funny taste and the kids did not care for it. On previous visits others had the BBQ... More

Clean and comfortable, add a cold drink and settle in for an enjoyable, reasonably priced meal provided by a courteous staff who will go the distance to please its... More

This restaurant is at a good location. The food and service have always been good and timely. If you are looking for a quiet dinner, this would not probably be a good choice as it is a "sports bar" atmosphere. I really enjoy the pulled pork, but have had the ribs and they are good also. The prices are reasonable... More
