You can get a better steak at any one of a number of chain restaurants i.e. Chili's, Applebee's, Outback. How this restaurant ever made it to "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" is a mystery to me!

No frills, but good food. Even with my steak being over cooked, it still had an excellent flavor. The butterflied shrimp were some of the best I have ever eaten.
