My wife and I eat here often. Some of the best darn BBQ ribs you could ever find. Great rib-eye steak. Lots of choices on the menu. The Speedway is a nice comfortable restaurant, with noon specials for the working man, or woman. They have a bar and cold beer on tap. My favorite is Amber Bach. They are a little hard to find but worth finding. Located a couple blocks South of HWY 2.

I almost missed this place when driving trying to find a place to dine one night. I even turned around and said, "Hey, I will give it a chance". It was packed in the parking lot. They had music going on the outstide tables and seemed to be pretty lively. I walk in and the girl seats me right away.

I wait for about 10 minutes before the waitress came and said hello and get my drink. She answered all the questions about the menu and I ordered the all you can eat ribs. Someone else brought my food and I asked about the bread that I seen at others tables so they got that for me as well. I can say the ribs were fall off the bone and very very good. Vegatables very bland, no seasoning and the french potato (a whole potato boiled then deep fried) bland as well with no seasonings. Now for the service.

When they brought my food, was pretty much the last time I seen anyone the whole meal. She did not come back to ask if everything was ok, if I wanted anything or another order.... I was waiting finished for a little bit before she came over and asked if I wanted more. I was so angry I told her, "well if you would have come 10 min ago, yes, but now, all I want is my check". She came and brought the check. Mind you, I was holding my credit card in my hand, when she put it on the table and walk away. I didn't know if I paid there, up front... As I walked out, I told her she was a sweet girl but horrible at being a server and told her exactly why. She said, "I'm sorry it was busy..." ok she had a 4 top, me, and a 2 top seriously. I watched her wipe down tables right beside me, she can't come ask how I am doing?

I get to the register at the bar and three girls are there trying to mess with a computer that obviously was not working, took my card and it did not print out a receipt. When the manager comes up she tries to explain what is going on and he scolds her in front of me telling her to have patience. After messing with the computer for a few moments, one of the three waitresses laughs and says to me, "well how was everything?" I said, "We won't even go there" as I am signing my slip. The manager just takes my slip and does not ask what happened, was every ok, nothing. Maybe others have had a better experience but, I am not going to try it again for the price.

As this establishment was within walking distance of ABVI it made good sense to try, and I was not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly and there is a good menu choice and a good selection of beers.
For those who like alfresco there are outside tables in a reasonable location.
Give it a try. you won't be disappointed.
