Really fun place .... the food is just ok though. I split the chicken and rib combo with my friend. Ribs were ok chicken was ok, service was ok. The ambiance and decor of the place is cool as is the whole story of its name.

Known for it's fried chicken and my wife did not like it. Kinda Tex-Mex food that is nothing special. Too many better eateries and have not returned.

It has been around for a long time. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The strawberry shortcake was great.

Great place to stop for a later dinner. There are quite a few places that close early. We had BBQ and chicken. Both of our entrees were good and fun atmosphere. Slow Saturday night, with friendly service. Also have outdoor seating, would return.

Had dinner midweek. They were busy but we got seated quickly. Had the chicken fried steak. Meat was good but too much breaking for me. My associate had the fajitas. Nice big portion. Waiter talked us out of the full strawberry shortcake. We could not finish the half he brought out. Probably the best I have had.

On a short vacation to AZ with my daughter and her friend they wanted to try this restaurant out and we weren't disappointed. Best Moscow Mule with bourbon and BBQ pork on a bun. Will definitely go back. Picked up a jar of their sauce and hope to be able to figure it out!

Because we live in the neighborhood of this amazing establishment, we try to go as often as we can. Go hungry and don't go if you are on a fat-free or low fat diet. It's comfort food at it's best. The menu is so diverse, but we go for the fried chicken. The best I've eaten anywhere. We have had... More

Lovely setting and a great building and reasonable price. Lunch on a Monday took way too long. Staff very attentive and tried however ordering took too long and when it finally arrived in dribs of the 5 diners a couple were not hot and one salad as basically large vegetables on chopped lettuce. It could have been much better but... More
