A good grill place for a small taste of the US. The menu is very classic but well prepared. Quesadillas were quite good, whilemeatin the cheeseburger was tender. However, don't expect a great level of service, it's quite slow between appetizers, main dish and the desserts. Even when the place is not crowded, they are struggling keeping the pace which can be an issue when trying to have a quick lunch break,
Please also note the place doesn't have its own toilets, these are shared with the little shopping mall it is located in...

We ended up here by default - unable to find the restaurant we actually booked for dinner, and I was starving so my patience for hunting for it wasn't there.
Service - main was brought out to our table well before we had finished our entree. So there was a toss up on which meal would go cold. Considering how empty the place was we sat there for ages waiting for plates to be cleared and/or someone to ask if there was anything else we wanted etc... In the end my partner went inside to interrupt a group of staff laughing and chatting to ask for the bill. I'm all for having a good time at work, but not if it means making customers wait.
Food - both of us agreed it was the worst overpriced steak we had both ever eaten. Very, very fatty and gritsly. My partner found her steak (cooked medium) to be very tough. Mine was ok (med rare). Both steaks came without the sauces we ordered. The mash and veggies served with the steak were very nice.
Dinner came to just over $100 (entree which had to go cold, 2 below average steak mains and 2 beers) which I was not happy at all to pay, considering how disappointing the steak was.
Overall - I would've been happier at McDonalds (and I hate maccas)

The food is really great. I have been here several time and am never dissapointed. The beef burger are excellent. The salads are also good. The portions are very big. So you must be really hungry if you want to complete a whole plate. I would recommend a meat dish and one salad for 2 people to share. They have fantastic lunch promos too. This place is really good value for money.
Some of my favorite dishes are: The Cowboy Burger and Chicken Salads that they offer.
The athmosphere is very casual. Like an american diner. Service is pretty good. Sometoimes a bit slow, but not that slow that it is a problem.
