“Not Kid Friendly, If you have kids go someplace else. To Much Violence for little Kids & Manager thinks thats just fine.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We arrived at the restaurant at 5:30pm. They put us in a back room where they put all the families with little kids. Several families with Kids range in age from 1 Month Old to 8 Years Old were also seated in this room. No one else in the room but families with little kids.
Giant TV in the room playing World Fighting Federation Shows with lots of Violence & Blood. (Not a good show for kids) When the waitstaff was asked to change the channel. She told us that the Manager would not allow them to change the channel while the fights were on.

If you have kids you should go some place else.

Then to top it all off the ribs were burnt, kids sandwich seemed to made with stale bread.

“Skip it”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

What a disappointment. I stopped here because of the good reviews. My daughter and I both ordered ribs. Mine were fine, but hers were burned black and dried out like jerky. we sent it back and then had to wait almost 35 minutes for new ribs and then another 15 min for the fries. They took my daughters plate and then brought back the dinner in pieces. the restaurant was not busy and our waiter was too busy flirting and gossiping to refill our drinks. We were seated in a booth by a window. The sun was coming through the window and baking the condiments on the table. The ketchup bottles and BBQ sauces were hot. We didn't use them as we were afraid of them spoiling in the hot sun. I will not return.

“Slow Service ok Food”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The food on this visit was Ok but the service was very slow and Waitress vanished when we were finished with our meal.

The kids meals are very limited in selections.

Staff at the front counter were very friendly and inviting. (Two Points for that)
