Our party of six ate here on a Tuesday evening. The food was good, but basic - ribs, burgers, fried fish - so if you want something more interesting, you should go elsewhere. The big problem for us, though, wasn't the food but the time it took to get it. Other tables got their food before we did, even though we were waiting long before they arrived. It probably wasn't worth the wait for us, but if you are a meat lover with a big appetite, this may be a great spot for you.

If you're after good feed of meat (as well as other food, but meat is my favourite) then this is the place to go! I had the ribs and chicken and was very pleased with the size and taste of the meal.
