You pick out steaks and get a price. Order anything else and drinks, and then go cook your steak on their grill to your liking. What's not to like about this? Staff is friendly and service is fast. Lots of parking.

This place offers a good beers and excellent food. You prepare the meal yourself in a large grill. I've chosen shrimp, one thick steak, aspargus and mushroom. The fun is to cook by side your friends, tasting a beverage!
