The quality of food was just okay. My pork chop was under cooked but very salty. My husband loves his meatloaf. Overall, an expensive meal, not worth it, will not return.

I really expected a lot from this place given that it is a Guy Fieri restaurant. It wasn't as great as I had hoped. There is a lot of spicy stuff on the menu. I like spicy, but not THAT spicy. It was too much...More
