My family and I got the BBQ for 2, which is ultimately a pretty good deal at $33. The first thought I had when I took a bite of the ribs was.... wow, this tastes just like a sparkler would taste on the 4th of July. It had an almost sulfery after-taste. Maybe it was just me. Of course, the day we visited, their refrigerator died the night before so they didn't have any Turkey and some other options, which was a bummer. The salad bar was very good and overall to feed a family of 6 cost us $44... so not too bad. I would recommend a visit if you are in the Gillette area.

Had lunch with five other men. A good sandwich for a fast food restaurant. The building is air conditioned which was a must in Gillette, being it was 96 out doors.

I had the smoked brisket with fried green tomatoes and baked beans. Salad bar was pretty good. My favorite part was actually the hot BBQ sauce I got on the side. It was really good and it is my understanding that they make the sauce in house. Brisket was a little dry but the BBQ sauce made it amazing.

Cold food that is way over priced. The service is slower than you can imagine you would find in any restaurant. Ordered the Walleye, the outside was charred and the inside was dry as a bone, I was astounded that whoever was cooking the food as it was definitely not a chef had the audacity to even plate that mess. The Walleye was $21.00. I had the worst Manhatten I have ever had, it was bright red due to 90% cherry juice for the small sum of $7.00. My husband had the BBQ which was dry and the onion rings were stone cold.
Will never go there again.
