Our host ordered three appetizers for each table, so very few folks had room for the huge meals when they arrived. But all were very good. Highly recommended, but save yourself for dinner!

I am not aware of daily specials, I do not eat there anymore because they do not smoke on premises. It is cooked in Excelsior Springs and reheated here.
