This restaurant went downhill after it was purchased from a couple several years before. The last time I went in it was dirty, carpets threads loose, booths not attached to wall and stuck out in walkway. Service okay but menus changed to cheap looking. Some food the same but others not good. Was not surprised when it closed. No one in the site at this time.

Used to be very good. Went down hill under new owners. Food was slow coming out of the kitchen; bland, over-cooked (or microwaved), and tasteless. This place would serve as a good case study on how to kill a restaurant. Closed down, and for good reason.

Their food quality began declining, and suddenly they were closed. Too bad that Smithfield lost another restaurant but, in this case we are better off.

Food took forever. My salad was bitter and had obviously been sitting out for a while. My sons nachos we just chips with what seemed to be microwaved cheese on them. Hard and tasteless. The rest had burgers which were fine.
