Unfortunately, my cheeseburger was cooked to a crisp and served on a stale, hard white bun with cold fries. Not worth the drive or the money.

Made a 7pm reservation. Arrived to find out they were already out of ribs. Its a 45 minute drive to get there. And the ribs are why everybody goes. Next time could you please call your reservations and let them know.

I’m sorry to say one of my favorite restaurants has disappointed me. New chef and vegetables plated and cold, one gal had overly cooked steak that was over salted. Three of us had their famous pork ribs that were still tasty however the presentation had...More
