If they closed I don't need to even explain why. Who on earth has an hour and a half wait on food? We got so fed up with trying to please our kids we just started giving them pepsi from our straws.

They have about a half dozen locations around the greater Denver area. Good, solid food. I probably would not take a date their but it is nice for lunch or with some friends for dinner.

Unless you are both a high roller and a glutton for punishment, steer clear of this place. Even if you are one of the lucky ones who escapes without a hefty tow bill, you still have to go through the torture of stomaching their food.

Do no eat here. They will tow your car if you don't walk straight into the restaurant. My husband walked two blocks to pick up me & my toddler & when we walked back to the restaurant, his truck had been towed. They have someone...More
