“Spacious and friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The attractive outdoor decor of the building got our attention so we decided to try it. I was impressed by the inside decor as well with a huge treehouse in the middle of the restaurant to entertain the kiddies while mom and dad enjoy a peaceful meal. It seemed to do the trick as there were less crying children than normal. The food was good, not spectacular but good. We got to watch someone ride the mechanical bull so that was fun. It seemed like everyone there were there celebrating a birthday so they must give away something on your birthday. Lots of cowboy wannabees dining there. Very spacious interior which made my dining experience more pleasurable as I don't like to feel crowded together and part of everyone else's conversation. Good, friendly service. An overall nice experience.

“Western theme”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A family friendly restaurant with dancing waitress's, mechanical bull riding, and lot's of fun for young and old. The menu features bar-b-q tri-tip and chicken as well as hamburgers. There is a bar available for well drinks, beer and wine. This casual restaurant always seems to be busy and on your birthday you get to eat free.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This place was quiet. It had a very cute tree house in the middle of the restaurant. The food was very good but for the price it could have been better. The vegetables were the best. It was quite pricey for what you recieve. The atmosphere was great. buckets for lampshades, a mechanical bull. The service was quite good but again a little pricey.

“Garbage!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

I thought I would try this place after not going there for the past two years. The ribs were disgusting and it was a waste of money!!
