“fast & friendly with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

I go here often as it is close but the food has always been decent and the servers very friendly.
Drinks are a tad high, so I usually just get water. I've never left hungry ;)

“Buyer Beware”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Our waitress really, really tried to provide good service but the understaffed kitchen provided barely edible fare despite taking a leisurely one hour and forty-five minutes to fill rather simplistic orders from a small family party of eight in a restaurant that was less than half-filled with patrons. If you have a strong stomach and a high tolerance for grease, order something fried from the menu. I have never waited so long and received so little in return. The management really needs to decide if they are willing to make the effort to run the restaurant side of this business in a professional manner versus just running a bar. It is unfair to put the wait staff in the unenviable position of apologizing to restaurant customers for the shortcomings of the kitchen staff.

“Exemplary quality for the price - superb value & great variety.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

This establishment offers a great menu with lots of variety from sandwhiches to full dinners, all with large portions & very reasonal prices compared to other comparable restaurants. You won't believe the ribs - the savory taste & quantity of meet is superior to Famous Daves - not kidding! Try this place; I'll guarantee you'll return. I Can't believe they can serve the quality & quantity for the price charged. Probably because it's remote from the city & the owner cares. Try it, you won't regret it.

“Cheese curds and Black Jack Burger combo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Not only are the $9.99 specials tasty and priced right which shrimp, salad, and baked potato an excellent choice, but the cheese curds with the Black Jack burger is spectacular. The blue cheese and the bacon crisp on a great burger with a fresh bun is not to be missed. Add Ranch dressing for dipping the cheese curds or use their marinara sauce. Both are great.
