Having heard so much about this place I anticipated much more than received. My food was lousy, dry ribs that tasted like yesterday's leftovers. It has a nice atmosphere in general, but the floor in the booth could have used a sweeping. I disagree with those who recommended it to me & won't be back.

I am normally an easy going guy. My fiancée and I went to SB for a drink and some light food at the bar. The bartender, a young lady came over after about 15 minutes of waiting and said, Sorry it took me so long to get over to you, this is my first day, and the manager left me... More

Stopped in early on Sat. night. Waited 20 min. which didn't bother us. We looked around & saw in our section alone there were more than a dozen empty tables & booths. At least a 1/3 of the tables & booths in the place were empty & yet they were making people wait to be seated. When our food arrived,... More

Not fond of chains, but this is a consistently decent meal at a reasonable price. Stick with the sandwiches and burgers. Pasta dish is alright too. But the salad dish is a no-no. Service is a little quirky at times. I know they train the staff well and make effort. But the waiter who sat down at our table with... More

Stopped in for dinner and tried the combo with ribs and pulled pork. Very good! Choice of three sauces are all yummy. Had a nice wheat beer and ate way too much. Highly recommended!!
