Our family place a take out order. The waitress that helped us was nice. We told her how many Pork Ribs we wanted and she helped us figure out what selection to make. When we got back to the motel we had the 2 dinners of 4 ribs each but one BBQ sauce was spicy (it curled your hair) and the other container had a mild sauce. We don't know if we got someone else's order as we never specified what kind of sauce. It was just strange to have 2 different kinds though. If the order was mixed up the other people are going to be surprised. I love their macaroni salad. It is fantastic! We also had coleslaw and corn on the cob. All in all the meal was great. We more and likely will be back but not every time that we go to Paso Robles as we have our favorite that we go all the time. For the two dinners with the sides it came around $44. It cost a little more to go their than other restaurants around.

Not for the faint of heart.,the portions are large. The staff is a lot of fun and to little line dances during the evening. If you want to ride an electronic Bull they have one of those too. Fun Place and the food is pretty good too.

I ate here twice this last trip! Both times, I enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and great service! I had the tri-tip, which was excellent, the first visit, and the BBQ chicken salad the second time. Both food choices were full of flavor and satisfying. We sat in the outdoor deck and enjoyed the warm summer evening. The servers were attentive and accommodating. I would eat there again!

The place was quiet about 4 people there. We got the pulled pork which wad good but you could taste the ketchup in the sauce. A bit too sweet for my taste.

The beer was cold but there wasn't anything special to rave about. Famous Dave's is much better...

This restaurant exudes a 'country' atmosphere just as it was designed to do. Very 'down home' while away from home. The food is good though my sandwich was somewhat dry...dry enough to ask for some barbeque sauce for it. The fries and onion rings were well cooked and crispy, but for the size of the sandwich with one 'side', the price of over $10.00 was a bit over the top. On the other hand, the service was excellent.
