“A Historic Phoenix Landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Same menu for decades - but when it is this good - why bother to change. Excellent Bar-b-que, beans and salad. A place to take out of town guests. Try it.

“I don't get it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

The last time we went there we said never again. Honky tonk mush. People go for the volume not to dine out. Atmosphere and location makes me nervous.

“Pleasant Goodnight Goodies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Ended up here after leaving the overpopulated and over-rated Organ Stop Pizza. Good pulled pork and patty melts all reasonably priced and brought quickly. Older decor from an earlier time period and hardly anyone there but that was okay with us. Nice waitress.
