Met friends yesterday. We drive 30 minutes to this place. The waitress Daja was great. Generous portions. Great food. Need to go early. Place is always busy.

My family comes here from time to time to enjoy the hash browns that we would load up with cheese, sour cream and bacon but they're no longer on the menu. Granted, we've experienced them running out of this dish on a Sunday but taking them off the menu was a big mistake in my (unsolicited) opinion. What I do... More

Absolutely the best BBQ ribs anywhere. No par boil/cook here. All rotisserie from beginning to your plate. Enjoy.

Great service with so so good. I got the chicken drummys and they were over cooked - should have sent them back and had a new order made. The salad was fresh and really good.

Food was good but took lot of time to come and also the check. We are in five people expecting to spend one hour and it took almost two.

Someone recommended this place to me and it lived up to the hype. We had burgers and fries to go and the food came out hot and looking good. They show you your food before you leave. The portions are so huge that we ate the same meal for lunch and dinner. The person who took our order was not... More

If you like fall off the bone ribs, this place is it. The ribs are absolutely delicious. Great choice of sides. Service is superb. Server checks often for drink refills. Quickly brought us extra napkins too.

We came here after a long flight to grab some food. The restaurant is really authentic, very friendly staff, and the food was quite tasty.

Went there after searching near our hotel on Trip Advisor. Lots of great food at a great price we left very full. My granddaughter had the 3 chicken strips kids meal and it was enough to feed a hungry high school Football player. I had the chicken parmigiana and it was very good. Great service and a nice atmosphere.

We were far away enough to enjoy family conversation. Our server checked on us to make sure our experience was an enjoyable experience. The price of food was within my budget and the food was excellent.
