Casual place to eat with good barbecue style food. Old fashioned video games at booths and elsewhere in the restaurant. Nothing fancy which is probably what you want if you bring the kids. Small parking lot but that’s okay because there is parking on the...More

Went with my hubby for lunch, and was uncertain on what I wanted to order. I asked the employee about the brisket melt sandwich, and his description convinced me to try it. It was incredible! I have included a picture of my sandwich,sorry it was...More

We went as a large group of several small groups, including a handful of small children, and we sat in the arcade level (top floor). The kids loved it, of course, though the next time I go I'll want to sit on the ground floor,...More

Slow service, sub par food, and kids run wild all over the outside of this restaurant and barcade. The food was not good, not fresh and not hot. The service was awful. Unengaging and very slow. Totally unimpressed on every level.

It took us 20 minutes and a half mile walk to find parking because the restaurant only has about 10 spaces to park, which is usual for up town so I wasn't to upset about that. The games are quality games and a good variety...More

Had dinner with my family. Decided to eat in the arcade (games are very expensive!). Servers were slow even taking our drink order; perhaps we might have done better on the main floor. However, once we got our order in, service was satisfactorily attentive. The...More

Had a business luncheon here and was hoping for a little higher quality food. The service was okay and the price was reasonable but we found the food bland and lacking flavor. We had Ribs and greenbeans which had the least flavor. The appetizer of...More
