We visited as a family for lunch. We all ordered something different and shared. It was all very good. The brisket tacos, caesar salad with cornbread muffins, chicken strips and pulled pork. Service was great and the food came out quickly. The decor/atmosphere is fun and inviting.

We love Famous Dave's in our family, but we didn't like how this restaurant was set up. You order your food cafeteria style, no real wait staff.

I went for lunch and was behind pleased. The food was hot, fresh and arrived quickly. I ordered wings, salad and that yummy corn muffin that they cooked to perfection. I didn't have room for dessert, but I was tempted!

Slow service, but good food. Restaurant was clean, menu was standard fare with a few fish selections. Portions were large and did not have room for desert.

The rich, smoky flavor of their meaty... More

Just stopped in, did not know of this chain of restaurants. But will keep a look out for. The ribs are cooked perfect. The burger was fantastic, great barbeque flavor. The restaurant is simple, clean and comfortable. You feel like you are out back at barbeque.
