The Grilled Chicken Sandwich was dry and had a very different burnt taste, not good. The firies had been sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time very soggy, horrible. PS the Ranch Dressing is not very good. Below Average meal The Lettuce, Tomato & Heinz Ketchup was the highlight of my dinner

Had a group of a dozen or so and they aren't totally set up for large groups but got us in adjoining booths. Great variety and all enjoyed their order. Timely service for Friday night too.

The food and service were spectacular. I can't wait to go back! It was also conveniently located, across the street from the Comfort Suites hotel.

I ordered the BBQ chicken. My meal was cold and the chicken was way too peppered. Next time I'll just drive up to Famous Dave's.

We stopped here for lunch while traveling from Chicago to St. Louis and had heard it was a good barbeque place. What we heard was right! There were four of us and we all agreed the food was delicious and the service was excellent. The ribs were just perfect--falling off the bone. And the side dishes were terrific too. Not... More
