I had a salad for starters and found a bug. Also, the salad made the inside of my mouth swell up. I told a manager who was unapologetic and not willing to do anything to resolve the issue. Never going there again. Why would you want to go to a chain bbq restaurant anyway when there is Woody's Smoke Shack in town? It was on Good Morning America and is the best bbq I've ever had.

The service is slow and unenthusiastic. Good luck getting in and out of there on your lunch break, even if the place is empty and you have a full hour. The food is okay. Nothing to shout about, but not terrible either.

A chain, but still my favorite BBQ in town.
