While I would have liked to have eaten there, I was not afforded the opportunity. The sign on the door says closes at 8pm; yet on this site it says 9pm. One of my pet peeves is when information is incorrect. I would suggest that...More

The food was great, large servings. The service was professional and friendly. We will be there again within a few days. The BBQ was outstanding. The rack of ribs was the best I have ever had anywhere.
