Super friendly people delivering honest and tasty food from the kitchen. Our youngest son, 26, celebrated his birthday party there. His loves the wings—all flats and they do accommodate. Baked shrimp is terrific and the sides always bring smiles. It’s an institution with high standards.

Decided to try the two for $25 dinners. A shared appetizer, two main courses of BBQ chicken and ribs and a shred dessert. All was very good as was the service. This has to qualify as one of the best dinner deals in South Florida....More

All the coupon books have their $25 dinner for two special. And, it's great food at a great price. A giant onion loaf, two dinner portion of ribs and a side each. The food was fantastic and the service was spectacular.
