Service is great and the menu has something for everyone. The Monday $5 is the best deal in town. I've only been to one other location and this one beats it for friendly service.

Beer tasted soapy, "award winning" ribs were fatty and tasted rancid, gator bites were greasy. Disgusting, revolting food. Surprised at all the positive reviews.
