The ribs are over the top, enjoy and savor. The BBQ is really good, and this coming from a Texan, where BBQ is King!

We placed a large order for our crew working at the Savemart Arena next door on October 30th. There were about 50 orders, all organized on a spreadsheet. Almost all of the orders were wrong, despite instructions to label each order being clearly written on the order sheet. Also, the food was delivered an hour before requested, despite clearly written... More

Very friendly staff, not enough tables or sitting area when it's busy. You can stand there for 20-30 mins with your food in hand waiting for a table. Also, no enough parking at busy times.

The service is always great. If you sit in the bar you can order your food and have it brought to you. Always great service with a smile.

Delicious food, especially the tender tri tip sandwich and tasty fries. The only downside is the difficult parking and finding a place to sit if you're eating at a popular hour.

This is not my favorite place at all. Stand in line for food, loud, concrete floors, metal tables, and TVs on every wall. My teenager and college age daughter's, however, love it! Some people say the try tip sandwiches are fabulous. I think I make better ones at home. I guess it's just a matter of preference.

Lets start off with if you can get in the parking lot or not! If you do get a spot you can then enjoy a decent meal. We took my daughter and a few friends there for her 15th birthday. We sat o the side where we were waited on. there wasn't a table big enough for everyone so my... More

Their food is delicious no matter what you order. Expect a line to order. The place is big and crowded and that's for a reason. I bring my out of town friends here all the time.

I had read the reviews and everyone raved...me personally, the food was ok...however you got a lot of it with a great price. I had the pork sandwich, would never put it on a garlic buttered bun...but throw some hot sauce and the pork was good. One has to realize, it is a college town...so it is all about quantity... More
