“Changed the burgers, now crap.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Very good rib eye steak, and one of the best burgers I've had (Ranch Burger). However, they've recently changed the burgers and now instead of a big juicy piece of meat, it's two tiny flat patties that taste like fast food. Total crap, just turned my husband and I, whom make a point to go there since it's not in our city, into going elsewhere. We've been loyal customers for years and we're getting crap seating and crap food, restaurant is going to the dogs.

“Plastic food, unprofessional staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Absolutely horrible. If you want a real meal, don't go here. The food is not by any means freshly cooked. You can taste plastic in their meat. I was with 5 other adults and one child and we left in complete shock at how this place was run. The staff is so all over the place not paying any attention to the service they are giving, only each others latest gossip it seems. One waitress (i think) had her chest out on display like a street walker. And what kind of chain restaurant doesn't have a uniform?!. I couldn't tell anyone apart.
Kitchen staff were walking out of the kitchen talking to other staff and getting themselves drinks. Heard one of them swearing like a trucker. Saw another give another customer some money and he gave him something... Get a hold of this place! So Unprofessional

“Check for Marker in Steak Sandwich”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Nice casual atmosphere. Had a steak sandwich and bit into a plastic steak marker. Mentioned it to the server and the meal was discounted by a $1. Thought that was nice of her. If you ask for gravy with your fries, you'll get a peppercorn gravy. I found it nice on the sandwich but not pleasant on the fries. The menu is great for meat lovers, featuring steak, ribs, bbq chicken and fajitas. Most meal prices including tax and tip are in the $30 to $35 price range.

“Ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

We had a good meal here but nothing that stuck with me over time. It was decent but fairly average. Notrhing wrong, nothing exceptional. I search for exceptional cuisine at all price points. This isn't exceptional, but decent.

“Best Tortillas Ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

This place is really great! It's pretty casual but they bring you nacho chips and salsa when you get there. They have really amazing tortillas because they are baked fresh!
