Plenty of food, and dependable meal. Our waitress was a blast, though. She is here from New Orleans, having been displaced as a result of Hurricane Katrina. We enjoyed our meal more than average as a result of her disposition.
Overall, I always think the food is overpriced, but when you know you want something you can count on, it is a place to pick. I don't go often as a result.

We really enjoy barbeque, but were disappointed with our dinner of rib tips and roasted chicken. The rib tips were not what we expected. Our mouths were watering for chunks of meaty fabulous tasting barbequed rib ends, but what we received were chunks of half meat, half grissle. Obviously the ribs this restaurant uses is not like the ribs I purchase and prepare at home. The chicken was indeed roasted, but the only barbeque that could be tasted was the barbeque sauce we put on the chicken. The disappointment could certainly have been our fault for being first timers and not knowing what to expect, but it is certainly not our idea of great barbeque....we will look elsewhere next time to enjoy barbeque.

Took a group of about 70 at 3pm. Gave them a few hours notice and they did a great job preparing for us. Very happy with the speed and service with a group our size and the notice they had.Thought food was good and portions/price reasonable.

Well, I am not from the south but I can tell local authentic barbecue and this is not it. However, my colleague and I enjoyed it anyway, ribs were tasty but not fall off the bone tender, sides were OK, don't know if the beans are from the can, they might be, not bad prices in my opinion. Very friendly service, simple decor, paper towel rolls on the table, the waiter will run through the sauce selections. An obvious chain, but still seems OK.
