The food was really good and also the ice coffee i ordered was really good 10/10, the only downside was that there was 2 AC but non of those were on, later they turned on 1 but on lowest settings/speed which wasnt enough but at least they had a fan

I hesitated to eat here due to the recent poor reviews, but my husband insisted. He was right, it was a very good meal and the service was excellent! They were very attentive and were on hand for refills and other requests. I am so very impressed! The tables were clean, the dining room was not crowded or loud. The... More

IWe tried this restaurant because we were passing by and the name attracted us. We thought that because of the title it should be a good place for ribs. Not impressed at all and will never return. Service also is not good.

If you're dining alone or with just less than five people, I would recommend getting their individual meals, but if you are coming as a group, then you definitely have to try the Boodle meals which are good for 5-10 persons. Also, for some of their individual meals, they have the Lite and Regular option which is very helpful if... More

Stopped in for ribs Saturday night. Nearly perfect. The ribs were great - fall off the bone tender and tasty. Several choices for a sauce. A little mashed potato and a little cole slaw rounded out the meal nicely. Only area the that could have been improved would be colder beer - but they brought a glass of ice with... More

The place is conducive, relaxing & the color is attractive to the eyes. Food is reasonable enough for their prices, I recommend you try their Baby Back Ribs! Their menu is slowly tearing apart, no art or whatsoever. Signage is not well lighted anymore, staffs are not very entertaining!

A quiet place, not too crowded. They got the best cheese rockets but terrible ribs. They got various flavors for the sauce of the ribs but does not really make a difference. The ribs are dry and flavor did not seep to the meat.

The ribs was a bit dry and they chopped it to bits so that was a bit of a downside. It was delicious thou. Now what I really enjoyed was the Group eating or Bodul Fight where you get to eat with your hands from the array of food served in the center of your own table. It kind of... More

I liked this place because it's not crowded around lunch time. I like their baby back ribs. Big serving and above average quality. Cheese rockets are my favorite here. I think its the best in town. I also tried there Salisbury steak but it wasn't that entertaining for me. Inexpensive meals with good quality food. Place is clean but service... More
