They have onion rings for $2 a plate unlimited and they are good. The BBQ is good but the prices are a little on the high side. The food is nothing special for the price except for the onion rings.

We had a group of 11 and were seated in a small room off the main entrance. The waitress was very efficient and personable. My wife had the fish tacos and I had the spinach quesadilla which was terrific. Overall everyone enjoyed their meals and some of us had enough left over to take home.
