Hyped from outside, normal, just ok on the inside

Nothing special here! The place is height, so from the road, you would think you were entering the Taj Mahal… And I fell for it. Everything about the place is normal and without distinction. It is a big sports bar with – surprise surprise – wings. That are OK. And beer that is OK.

This place has my favorite wings. The have fried or smoked wings with awesome flavor choices. I always get the Buff-a-Que which is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. They have a great menu and everything I have had is good. The service is always great!

My fiance and I go there regularly. They have a great staff and the manager is v ery nice. I love their sangrias and he loves the different variety of beer. The food is very good and well worth the price. Looking forward to our next visit.

They use to have a really delicious cream of broccoli soup. Ordered it recently for lunch as a combo with the Cuban sandwich. The cup of soup was served in a small ramekin and it tasted like cheese wiz with chicken broth and large broccoli flowerettes. It use to be a traditional cream of broccoli...very disappointed. The Cuban was large... More

Not sure why I go to BBQ places outside of the south and west. Looks really good from the outside, but the BBQ is just OK. It's the kind of place where the atmosphere takes precedence over the food. The menu was a little confusing, but the waitress was very helpful and service was fast and efficient. Had the combo... More
