“Not a good start”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

There were 5 of us, 2 being your kids. We waited 20 min or so after placing our order. Manager came out with the food, sat down & said ok, how long was the wait. We told him. He said no, that isn't expectably, He picked up the tab. Food was good & we will go back.

“Crowded but nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Tables are a little close together, but that's no doubt due to the overhead of being in that center. Food was good, service was great and if you want to get a more open feeling when dining eat outside on the patio.

“Family visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The smell of smoky meat outside is enticing. But the place is a bit old and tired inside. Service was good, and he described each accompanying sauce for us, as it seems to be what there famous for too. Ribs where good but a bit too much like fast food for me! Much nicer restaurants around.
