Candied bacon = yumness....there were 6 of us, so we all ordered different items and they were all very tasty. Wonderful dinning experience at lunch time. No matter what you order, you can't go wrong. Enjoy.

I have eaten here numerous times and it never disappoints!! It is our favorite local restaurant. The brisket is incredible and the sides are just as good as the entrees. Plus its a good value for the amount of food you get!
