The food was outstanding, this was also recommended by our hotel and did not disappoint. Brisket was a little on the spicy side, the chicken wings were great.

Awesome service, awesome prices, and awesome food! We had the brisket tacos that were great, a cheeseburger with homemade chips, fried banana bread ala mode for dessert along with beer brewed in house. Don't miss this!

Service was friendly so but slow. When we returned an incorrect order it was meet with a bit of sarcasm. Couldn't get refills and food was just ok. My Salad was good but the others food was not the greatest. Will not visit again.
