I've been eating here since 2001. It used to be so much better when it was frequented by locals. But, now its mostly tourists who seek blander and more pedestrian fare, alas...

Ordered the "light" beef plate and got a huge pile of roast beef, baked beans, garlic bread, french fries, and salad bar. Really delicious! Seemed like lots of locals eat there, too.

Ribs. Ribs. Ribs. Ribs. Ribs. Ribs. Ribs. Oh yeah, the chicken is good too. I'd go for the sampler.... In about 4:30... and out at 8pm. If it didn't get all over your face.. you didn't do it right.
