Food was prepared to order. Burger was very good and fries as well. They have fair prices and many items to choose from.

Ate the half chicken special while waiting for my train to depart. The chicken was kinda dry but the BBQ sauce was tasty. Came with steak fries which weren't bad. I should have tried the ribs to see if they are really Number One! :-)...More

The bar-b-que was good tasting, but the price was really high, and the bun was huge, taking away from the bar-b-que. The cole slaw was sour and the fries were soggy, I guess when you order to go, it doesn't matter.

I ordered beef ribs online, which were delivered to my hotel. One word: YECH. Well dried meat wrapped around some bones and covered with some mediocre sauce. I got onion rings on the side. A meager amount of mediocre rings. Not bad, but definitely not...More
