We would recommend this place to anyone who likes good Q and also doesn't mind the numerous television sets, which are all over the bar area and separate from the dining booths. The music was loud enough to hear and understand the lyrics, but not overwhelming like a lot of these places. The food was excellent, and so was the... More

You can't go wrong here....yes, it's a chain restaurant but it has our favorite meal with so many sides that we always have a hard time choosing! Great value too. We go here on a regular basis.

Always a good time and great food. Love the cornbread app. Usually a short wait to get a seat but it is worth it!!

My best friend LOVES their chicken fingers. If you like having dessert, you must try their hot bag 'o donuts - made fresh while you wait... More

I also like the choice of sides they offer and the different sauces. They also have some great lunch specials at a very good price. I also like... More
