We had an awesome experience here. Loved the wait staff, loved the food. What the salad bar lacked in vegetables it made up in dressings. Try the Apple Cider Vinaigrette. I had the pork dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We popped in on a Friday night without reservations. We were seated immediately and the waitress took our drink order right away. She was attentive and swift throughout the meal. The barbecue is excellent. The meat was tender and moist and the sauces were great....More
