We got lucky and didn't have to wait. We got our discount coupons from the player's kiosk and sat down. Service was a little slow at first but fast and efficient once we ordered. I had the 1/2 rack ribs and 1/2 chicken. The chicken was very good, the ribs excellent! Plenty of hand wiped and napkins provided. We'll be... More

You know, when a restaurant specializes in only two menu items, it's got to be good! The only choice to make is BBQ Ribs or Chicken. (Or a portion of both.) Whatever entree you choose comes with bread, corn on the cob, baked beans and slaw. You may take longer trying to chose a beverage from Ellis Island's beer menu... More

Only a few things offered on the menu - simple BBQ done very well. Was my least expensive meal while in Vegas and one of the best.

We love their Q, and that is saying a lot since we are from Texas! The quality and amount of food is enough for 2 people to share. Price is ridiculous! What a great deal! Be sure to get player's club card for discount and print out voucher from kiosk before sitting down to eat... and oh yeah, did I... More

Ample portions of some really good bar-b-q ribs and/or chicken. Very inexpensive also. Eat til you're full and take the rest back to warm up. You get no less than a half chicken and if you get a combination, a half slab of ribs. We got a player's card in the casino and that gave even more of a reduced... More

This is a brew pub/restaurant/casino. A few years back they had great smoked ribs and chicken. We were looking forward to it. Turns out the no longer smoke their food it is simply grilled with no smoke at all. Mind you its cheap, but not worth going out of your way for. The beer they brew is quite good and... More

Went with a bunch of friends. I got the full rack baby back ribs. It comes with corn, baked beans and bread. Totally worth the $15. It will be $18 unless you swipe your card at the kiosk for the coupon. A friend got the half rack and a half bbq chicken. I tried the chicken and it was completely... More
