I had rib tips not tender. Fries were good but we felt like once we got our meals...we were expected to leave...place is stark. Pulled pork was just ok. Probably won't go back. Steamboat was better.

I've visited this restaurant several times and excellent every visit. I usually have the brisket and sausage. Fried pickles are great. Good choice of sauces to choose from. Just wish it was open later!

It was a take out order of the rib tips and spicy sausage, the meat was very dry, and I was given very hard end pieces that looked more like beef jerky,not satisfied at all, wil not return, very disappointed
