This is not a sit down to order place so do not make the mistake we made by taking a menu and sitting down. This is more like an "El Pollo Loco" in a strip mall rather than a restaurant. Fortunately, there was only one family ahead that ordered, and we quickly realized that we had to go to the counter to order. There is one person taking orders and serving food. You have to set your own table: napkins, utensils, etc. You have to ask for water. We saw one person going in and out of the kitchen with an apron. I am sure there must be some others in the back, but we just couldn't figure out why it would take 25 minutes for the food to come out. The only guess is that we were told that the fries would take 20 minutes to cook. There is no on-sight restroom, and one would be to take a key to the end of the strip mall, which is about a city block. The restroom was a bit dirty.
The food took forever to come out. It was about 25 minutes, and the seasoned fries were made upon order, and they were very tasty. The pasta salad was also very tasty. The main event was the barbeque. The tri tip sandwich is very generous and you receive a small side and a drink for the price. The menu can be found at its website. The 1/4 chicken was very big as well. And the barbecue baby back ribs were tender. The beef ribs were not cooked long enough and/or were too gristly.
