The food is consistently good; their buffalo wings and ribs in particular are great. The owner is always keen to help and on one occasion happily helped me cater a party for a pretty good discount!

Good value, good food and good variety - the ribs are their specialty and I've never seen 16 year old girls eat so much! So clearly enjoyed by all.
