We have been to Rack & Helen's many, many times and have yet to order something that was not excellent. The pulled pork is always top shelf and the new Stromboli sandwich is great. Mexican food is always a good choice as well. The homemade macaroni salad and coleslaw are also worth the trip.

Rack & Helens has excellent food. They serve a wide variety to satisfy almost any palate.
Mexican food is very good. Sausage rolls are excellent ( and one is easily enough for two ).
Nightly dinner specials (after 5pm ) are very good too. The 1/2 slab ribs with two sides on Fri.
nights is an excellent choice. The ribs are meaty & tender. A variety of sauces are served so you
can make them mild, medium, or hot at your table. The pizza's are very good too !
Pulled pork is also a frequent special and is great !
The service is excellent ! The servers work together very well & check on you often and are very
friendly. It's only for 21 and over - except on Sundays.

Good value for food, and absolutely amazing service with good to great food. They have family days on Sunday, but other than that it's 21+. We visit Rack's almost every week and I have never had a meal I haven't enjoyed, and I can't emphasize enough how amazing the service is; other restaurants really should take notes. My only complaint are the beer and liquor prices. This place still gets 5 stars and we will be patrons for a long, long time.

Everything I've ever had at Rack's is amazing. The chicken nachos, pizza roll, pulled pork, chicken club sandwich, pizza, and more. Very generous portions and tasty. The staff is on the ball and friendly. This is a bar so 21 and up. Smoking is currently allowed but they have good ventilation (I'm a non-smoker and I'm usually not bothered)
