I was not impressed by the food, the time spent waiting for a seat or the time spent waiting for my glorified cheeseburger. I was not impressed with the silly décor or the food I could have made at home. I waited a long time...More

I have to say I'm not a fan of this place. The concept is great, but I could have had a steak for that price. Honestly not that great of food. The same quality as Denny's, but as expensive as Longhorn.

Large, open restaurant, which was noisy during lunch. All tables. Food was good, but I thought a bit pricy for what you got. Coleslaw was not the mayo kind, and rather dry.
