good but could be great

this is a nice place in a good spot! the staff was semi friendly but i felt a bit unwelcomed all at the same time. The food prices are reasonable but the taste needs some seasoning for my taste.. was good but could be great!

Went there for a night out with my husband, was very disappointed. Order chicken and wasn't done. Told the waiter and she didn't do anything about it. Couldn't eat it but still had to pay for it. Wil not go again....

Came back to Reading to visit relatives, and one of them recommended trying this place, which is west of Reading proper. It was certainly popular on a Friday night with a row of motorcycles lined up neatly along the front. There is roudy outdoor seating near a bar and a smaller family area inside, where we sat. BBQ, BBQ, BBQ... More

Weekly dining establishment. Great variety and very good value. Food has always been top notch and serve is super. We have never had a bad experience here. First place to invite family and friends for evening meal.

Went there with my family hoping for good BBQ, but instead the food was like BBQ from a plastic container at the grocery store. If you don't want to be disappointed keep your expectations low, very low.

We went there to try it for the first time, and it will be my last!!! Food came out cold, we got the ribs and chicken and I couldn't even taste any of the sauce on it. My daughters potato came out hard. She couldn't even cut thru it. I didn't say anything because I just wanted to leave. I... More

The food was good, service was fast and attentive. Prices were decent. Only thing we didn't like was that from where we were sitting, cigarette smoke came in every time someone opened up the door to go to the deck. Besides that, experience was great.

Good atmosphere. Food was good, service was great (Lorin) and we stayed after our meal for some great entertainment. Not the fanciest, but casual- relaxed- and fun.

Great service both times. Good price. Portions good but could be a bit larger. First time food excellent . Second time pork was awful. Worth another try.
