“A pleasant surprise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

As a vegetarian, it was not my decision to go here with my colleagues, however I was pleasantly surprised. The salad bar was well-stocked with a multitude of options to satisfy any vegetarian. I would recommend staying away from ordering the baked sweet potato as it is cooked to a mush. The cornbread, on the other hand, was fantastic. Be sure to get the cinnamon/sugar butter to spread over the bread - you won't regret it!

“It was just good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Just had an all you can eat pork ribs, chicken, sides and real good corn bread. But I have to say the talk didn't add up to the service. For the price you pay, you can't beat the grub! The only downside was the service and the serving portions. Maybe the one in st. Cloud is better, but needless to say I'll be back again!

“Maybe i went on a bad day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

people were raving about this place and i don't know if the chef got dumped and wasn't having a good day.I will give them another try but i feel the ribs were too dry.I did order the St Louis ribs and i had to say i wasn't impressed.The waiter even said to go to bubbalous and i didn't listen.

“Always great and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Get the "Big Deal", it comes with a huge glass of sweet tea (if you like, or soft drinks) a nice sandwich and choice of side dish. Very reasonable and they have a nice salad bar as well.
