They've been there forever. That alone should tell you something. My family has gone there, plus we go there separately by ourselves or with friends. We have had pretty much everything on the menu. Thier BBQ is great, no complaints from us.

After a long hiatus, Emil Villa's has reopened. The ribs are good, but usually not very warm. I bring my folks who are in their 90s. For them and even for me the atmosphere is often too cold.

After a fire had been closed forever. Not necessarily wonderful prior to fire. Went for breakfast on Sunday morning and the place was crowded, yet the food was delicious. I will be back again and again and again. Service was good, prices decent.
