I work in the area from time to time and have eaten at this restaurant a few times. The food is fair and the service is good. This evening I went for supper and they had two specials ribs with fries and another one with mashed potatoes. I asked if I could substitute the fries with mashed and said I would pay for any difference. The waitress apologised and said they didn't like to substitute anything, but she would ask. Four people assembled and discussed if we could have mashed potatoes instead of fried potatoes at length. Then another person was brought into the conversation from the office. She and our waitress returned to tell us no because it was a special. (The other special had mashed potatoes) We ordered the rib special as is....surprise. I ate about 4 of the ribs and asked to have it packaged so I could take it to work to eat as I was working the night shift and couldn't stomach much at that point. Our waitress then apologised and said that they couldn't allow take out as it was in house only???? This was not an all you can eat rib special. However, we noticed one of the managers walking out with a bag of take out food and ice. Wait staff was embarrassed for their inability to provide us with minimum industry standards. Servers are clearly hobbled by the abnormal management policies.
