I've seen rave reviews, but for me, this is just an average meat and three establishment. I've dined here several times and it's been neither bad or great. There aren't a lot of choices. The fried chicken is their best meat, but again, it's not...More

If you want outstanding home style food then make sure you eat at The Steak House. The fried chicken is the best you will find anywhere. The side dishes will remind you of your dinners at home.

Despite it's name, this is NOT a steakhouse in the way one thinks of that term. It's a cafeteria-style restaurant where country-style steaks are an option. They're famous for their fried chicken, and indeed this (everyone in our party chose this) was quite well-prepared. The...More
