“Needs Some Work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Ordered a full rack of ribs which were good but the end I started on was very hot but then within a few more ribs it was barely room temperature and the end ribs were a bit dried out. The carpet needed some cleaning and some paper and napkins on the floor in the middle of the room stayed there from the time we arrived till the time we left. Also wasn't pleased they sat me and my co-worker in a large room with large family tables with small children.

“Had a great dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Everything was great! I had the sirloin steak with bleu cheese and bacon, it was cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful! The staff was very friendly. Our waiter was new... he did a fantastic job and the restaurant was packed. My husband and son had the combo and both enjoyed it. The bread pudding shooter for dessert was yummy!

“Big Yummy!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Everything we had from the Ribs to the Pulled Pork was excellent. Great service, but a word to the wise, get there early or you might have to wait a bit.
