“Good times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

8 of us went here. We really didn't care for the mac n cheese. The wet rub ribs were enjoyable, but the dry rub ribs were too dry. All you can eat ribs for $15 can't be beat though. Didn't care for the chicken salad, but the salad bar was better than most, but maybe slightly overpriced at $7.50 for just the salad bar. I would definitely go back!!

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Very good food. We ordered chicken combos they were very good. Bathrooms were very clean. Waitress was very nice. Took our order very fast and food arrived pretty fast as we'll. don't know what else to say about it but must have 100 words for it to take the survey on here. Maybe this will be enough now.

“Not that great.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

7 adults and 3 children stopped here. The food was nothing great and was cold. The tea was like syrup. We asked for unsweetened but it didn't come until the end of meal.

“We were both happy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

My husband likes wet sweet ribs and I like dry rub and this place was a big hit for both of us. Great service and one of the best meals we had at PCB. We had to go back again right before we left for home. Too bad we never got around to eating anything but the ribs!
