Had their traditional lemon pepper wings from heaven. I’m a wing connoisseur and these were some of the best I’ve had. A little dry but wow... packed with flavor. I will go back!

For me this place was ok., Its old and needs a renovation. The Food is ok. The wings are nothing more than Average. The Service was ok. The Parking is great. Not enough TV's. to watch Sports.
