Went on Sunday, ribs special. Ribs were tasty, meaty and good portion. My wife got the chicken so we shared. The chicken was hot (temp) and not dried out, good chicken. Building nothing much but good food at good prices.

It's a nice little place. Reminds me of Boston Market or Kenny Rogers Roasters. I've always had good meals.

Good chicken and ribs at a great price. And the staff is very friendly. Interior is dated but when you sit on the patio on a nice night, it's a great little place.

This place has fantastic chicken (I get the 1/4 chicken breast and leg), and all of their sides are great as well. Good food and you can get out for under 10 dollars as well.

Family restaurant with good food for sit in or quick and easy take out. Been going for a number of years and never disappointed. Chicken and all sides are quite tasty all at a reasonable price.

The rotisserie chicken is very good and juicy. However, 2 roasted chickens and a few side dishes is over $30 Too expensive for chicken. Used to have very reasonable prices.

My coworker recommended this place. I now go there for carry-out dinners instead of buying the rotisserie chicken at Jewel or Meijer. It costs a dollar or two more but it is substantially better. There is a smokey taste and it was fresh out of...More
