Very good ribs--not great. But for a chain restaurant, they are better than any other chain that I have tasted. The service is very good, and the menu is broad enough to please most people. We will come back again.

Dinner with business colleagues and wanted to go here because the good experience with one in Kansas. This one not so much - ribs very dry, and that's what you come for. The low drink prices made up for the disappointing ribs.

The bread pudding is the best I've ever had. This is a must with your lunch or dinner. I like to have it ala mode.

Famous Daves is popular but the sauce needs work and the prices are through the roof. If you take a family of 6 there and plates are average $15-20 and the BBQ is not great, it may be the last visit. I will say that the customer service here is outstanding. Meat was not best quality for the price.

The waitress was very easy to talk to and provided fairly good service. The food was excellent. It was early in the day for them but it seemed like it was usually a popular place as the parking lot was usually full when we drove past.

On my way i stopped in this restaurant and ordered 2 beef tacos for lunch. They were excellent. Fresh taste and nicely spiced. And for a sharp price. This together with the friendly staff deserves 5 stars.

We stopped in for supper as we were staying at the La Quinta next door. Very busy on Friday night but got served reasonably quickly. The brisket was delicious as we're the links. The ribs were very tasty but a little to chewy for our liking, my homemade ones are better.

Thank Brian S
