Not great but not terrible

Definitely not as good as they say on You've Gotta Eat Here. I found the food to be average at most and the service is lacking. However, it's super close to home so sometimes it's just convenient.

Spent a Saturday afternoon in the area with the family. Saw this place on Food Network show "You Gotta Eat here!" The ribs were ok. The chicken was nothing special and the BBQ sauce for the chicken tasted like tomato soup. The fries were good! Cherry pie for dessert was ordinary. A little disappointing.

Ribs Tuesday attracted us. We had chicken and rib combo. Portion was small, chicken and ribs were dry and chewy, fries tasted old, iced tea was watered down. A Happy Meal would have been much tastier then this. The restaurant is old and needs to be updated to at least, the 80's. We told the waitress we weren't happy with... More

The best baby back ribs I had in years. Sweet, tender, simply delicious! Traditional decor restaurant, not to say, old..., really minimized setting, but they do the job. The food is rapidly served by very pleasant staff and everything tasted supremely great! It is worth stopping if you are in the area! Looking forward to stop by again and try... More

I've wanted to stop here for quite a while, as it looks like a great local bbq joint. Very disappointing. The upside is that the meal was served nearly instantaneously after ordering; obviously the portions are pre-prepared and sitting in the fridge. My side salad was old and turning to mush around the edge of the leaves. I was able... More

Heard about this from the TV shot "you gotta eat here". My husband had the combo chicken / baby ribs. Chicken was dry, just warm. The ribs were tasteless, brushed with the same sauce as the dipping sauce, tasting like ketchup. I had a chicken caesar salad. Tons of lettuce with very dry chicken strips.

I have been going to Haugen`s for years now , and the one thing that will never change is the quality of their food, always made fresh ! the homemade fries are so good , made fresh each day. I personally do not like the BBQ sauce .....But does it deserve a bad review for it ? Some people like... More

Great food not too expensive. Approximately 3km from the BEER STORE in Manchester, On. Fresh Strawberry Pie to top off your meal. As seen on the Food network "you should eat here"

I wish I could tell you about the food, but after being seated and promptly ignored by the entire serving staff, I left. I sat for 10 minutes and not a single person offered a drink or to take my order. Had a frozen pizza at home. All good.
