“Good atmosphere -- food so, so”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The atmosphere was fun and inviting .. like a local bar where everyone knows your name. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly. I had the Ribeye Steak sandwich, unfortunately it was grisly and hard to eat. The rest of the food was so, so. But for the low price not too bad. From the reviews, I was hoping for a little better food quality.

The place is not near downtown but rather near the ADM plant. It is a hidden bar in a strip mall that we passed the first time around. Not sure how safe the place would be at night.

A good place for locals, not so sure if it is a place for visitors to frequent.

“Best kept secret in Decatur, IL”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We have lived near this place for 11 years and decided to stop because there were always so many cars in the lot. We now go quite often. Great food, cheap prices (for instance, all-you-can-eat fried chicken, mashed potatoes, rolls,etc. for 6.50 on certain days, BLT's are $3.50, Taco Salads, hamburgers, shrimp, meatloaf, about anything you could want for really cheap prices.) Staff acts like you are family and are on the run constantly. Not fancy, but great food for low prices!

“Good service, great food!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

My hubby and I visited because we had a coupon, otherwise, might never have gone there. Had their tenderloin and fries...EXCELLENT! Noticed other items on the menu we want to go back and try.

I love their tenderloins and livers. This is a place that you wouldn't think has good food.
