Enjoyable dining

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.

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

I visited a few months ago and picked up bar-b-que and fries. Got home in 4 minutes and fries were old &cold. The bar-b-que was fatty with too much sauce making bread soaking wet. Second and FINAL visit was to pick up a cheese burger and fries, asking they be hot fries. The fries were hot but very brown and... 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.

Depending on the time of day, you may want to avoid. Gets way to rowdy at night, and believe me I can handle myself. Just a note. The food is average, the BBQ is average, it's smoky inside as well as out so be warned.

The food came out quick and the waitress was nice. The owner even made rounds to make sure everything was ok. I wasnt very impressed with the food. Value was good but I am from Philadelphia where there are awesome food places and this place was sub par for me but might not be considered that way to others with... More

I found the food to be kind of sickening and I wasn't really even that impressed with the BBQ. This is a big biker bar type establishment. It is a neat place with really nice outdoor seating. You have to order the food yourself which I am not crazy about. There are a lot of TV's inside to drink and... More
