After a mandatory remodel by the landlord, this place went through a remodel over a year ago. Haven't been there since. Went 1/20. Prices have been jacked up about 30%. "Specials" go for over $40 a plate. Way overpriced. Got seated for a 3 person table. Waitress took our drink orders and said she would be back with the bread.... More

Pulling up to the place I did not smell even a hint of the woody smoke that a "Steak and Ribs" place should have. That was a first hint. I smoke my own ribs at home, and chase down a taste whether in Philly, Houston, or St. Louis. So, had to try the rib platter (three different kinds) here. First... More

The area is not extremely pretty but inside is nice and the food is excellent. You can find items at all prices. However, they are known for meat, so you should bring your meat-eating friends and family and enjoy!

YES... I ordered chilaquiles at a steak and rib restaurant. I ordered this one fuzzy morning around 11am after a night of having one more than you should. I called and made the order for pickup. When I arrived my food was still warm and packaged nicely. The hostess was very nice as well. When I arrived home I started... More

What a surprise!! One of the best steaks I have had in a long time. The menu was a diners dream. If you couldn't find something to satisfy your taste buds you should give up eating. I had the Santa Fe steak with Garlic mashed and grilled veggies. Absolutely delicious start to finish...

From the moment I called for a reservation to the time of our exit, Cindy and I were totally impressed with the staff. We had the fortune to be seated at one of Samantha's (Sam) tables and were treated to her awesome service. She was perfect with her attentiveness (just enough to meet our needs but not too much to...

Their bbq sauce is very unique. I had the chicken and ribs. The chicken was good, if not on the dry side. The ribs were great. My co-worker had the tri tip which looked excellent. Prices seemed fair. Atmosphere was nice. Servers were attentive.

Still, I asked my spouse to try a bite of my steak and for my surprise she confirmed my experience by saying It smells fishy" Long story short , A very... More

Really enjoyed our meal and atmosphere at this restaurant. The cook messed up my husband's order, but the waitress caught it after serving us, and immediately corrected it and took it off our bill. Mistakes happen. She was terrific and we didn't complain one bit. The wine list and beer selection was also good. Big portions too.
