“Won't be going back”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Yes, it took me a while to write a review. We recently drove by the restaurant and it reminded me. My husband and I dined here after it had been opened for a short while. We initially sat outside on the big patio and were promptly given menus and drinks. Seemed like we were off to a good start. Shortly afterwards though we started getting swamed with flies. There was another couple sitting outside and we couldn't help but notice that at any given time the man had 10+ flies on his back (he was wearing a yellow shirt so they were easy to see). We asked to be moved inside which was taken care of quickly. The inside is cool in a country bar kinda way. We ordered and when the food came shared each others meal. We weren't impressed with anything that we tasted. It seemed like fairly run-of-the-mill stuff that we could make at home.

“This is a fun joint”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

Went here a few weeks ago after a great dinner at the Purple Place. Thought... let's stop in and see what this is all about. We stopped in at Sauced before heading next door to the Saloon. Sure there were little quibbles about attention from the staff but I'm tellng you: After a "few", it really didn't matter. The band rocked the house that night. Cocktails should be banned for being dance inducing. You know what I mean, right? Had a blast and can't wait to go back.

“Great place to entertain guests”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

This is a country western bar and restaurant.
The food we had was pretty good: tasty hot wings, delicious burgers.
Wednesday night is line dancing night. They have a DJ that plays country music and and several young girls who get out on the dance floor and will teach you the ropes if you are willing to learn. No cover charge and its fun to just watch
They also have a mechanical bull for 3 bucks a ride.
It's a great place to take friends who haven't been to a country western bar...especially guest from other countries who are looking for a "cowboy" experience.
Service was polite and prompt. We spent 60 dollars (3 people) with beers and food.
Cons: I didn't like their chili.
