Let me start this by saying we did not eat here, but it did smell delicious. That being said my family and I stopped in for drinks after a football game so we just went to the bar. We were the only 4 people at the bar and, who I am assuming was the bartender, asked if we were eating... More

Great environment. Slow slow kitchen. Food was good but not amazing. Needed more kick. Having been in New Orleans I expected more I suppose.

Skip the chain restaurants and visit Staples. The BBQ chicken strip dinner w/ sauce on the fries was my favorite late night, after-party meal in high school and college. As an adult, I only eat seafood for meat, but I still come to Staples for the sauce whenever I'm in town. #youngstowntradition

We happened upon this restaurant by accident several years ago. We live over hour away and make it point to eat here once or twice a year. Never had a bad meal. The BBQ sauce is awesome! Always full when we leave. We usually order ribs and chicken. The sweet potato pie is the best!

It was my first time visiting. I was with a larger lunch party and we had to wait two hours for our food. We did not receive drink refills and we were not asked. There was no apology for the wait time. Everyone food was brought out at different times. The food was okay but I would not return or... More
